What are the advantages to attending an APU All Access event?
A lot of people tell us when they plan their visit to APU that they want to “do it all,” but often struggle to fit everything in. APU All Access is strategically designed to do just that! We want you to leave knowing more about APU and the college application process, while also seeing what it is like to be a student at APU.
What meals are provided?
We suggest eating dinner before you check in with us, perhaps at a local Azusa favorite. Meal tickets for our campus dining venues will also be available for purchase at check-in for $5.
All meals on Friday are included in your package, and breakfast in the 1899 Dining Hall will be available on Saturday morning for those who stay.
Where will I be housed?
All students will be housed with a current freshman in one of our four first-year residence halls. Our rooms do not come equipped with extra beds, so come prepared with your own sleeping bag, pillow, and maybe an air mattress.
Housing is not available for parents. Please view the listing of local accommodations.
I know a current student at APU; can I request to stay with him/her?
You may stay on campus with a friend, but we ask that you make those arrangements on your own. Upon checking in, please notify those assigning housing where and with whom you will be spending the night.
If I’m coming to APU All Access with a friend, can we request to stay together?
Yes, but we assign housing at check-in. We will do our best to meet your request, but we suggest arriving together and as early as possible. (Check-in starts at 5 p.m.)
What should I bring with me?
- Your sleeping bag (air mattress if you prefer) and pillow
- Clothing for Friday and Saturday
- A notebook and pen to take notes
- Your Bible
- Some spending money
- A cell phone (especially if APU is picking you up from the airport)
Is airport transportation provided?
The Office of Undergraduate Admissions offers transportation services to prospective undergraduate students only who are flying into Ontario or Burbank airports. To schedule this transportation, contact Undergraduate Admissions at (626) 812-3016 or (800) TALK-APU.
At this time, we are unable to provide transportation from/to any of the other Southern California airports.
Should I bring my parents?
Absolutely! We encourage families to visit APU together. A separate parent track will promise to keep your parents busy while they experience APU in a way that is relevant to them.
Will I be able to meet with my admissions counselor?
Our admissions staff is dedicated to running each session and attending to the needs of our 300-some guests at every All Access event, so they are not available for formal appointments on these days.
However, your counselor will be around campus all day! Please say “hello” to them during APU 411 on Friday afternoon.
Will I be able to meet with someone from Student Financial Services?
We will walk you through the financial aid process during the student and parent sessions. Admissions staff will also be available to answer any additional questions.
