Do I have to live on campus?

Living on campus provides many opportunities for positive student development and learning. First-year students, in particular, benefit from the supportive environment of the on-campus community. For this reason ABAC requires all freshmen who have earned fewer than 30 semester hours of collegiate level credit after high school graduation and have not satisfied Learning Support requirements to live on campus. Freshmen must live on campus unless they are commuting from a parent’s, guardian’s, or grandparent’s home within a 50-mile commuting distance.
