The American College of Norway (ACN) is celebrating 25 years of excellence in bringing Norwegians, Americans and other international students together to study in Moss, Norway.

Founded in 1989 by Dr. Steinar Opstad, ACN first opened its doors in 1992 to 24 eager and adventurous Norwegian and American students. Ever since its successful and monumental first year, ACN has had the great privilege of welcoming students from Norway, the United States and beyond to our tight-knit learning community.
“In the 25-year long partnership, over 2,000 students and more than 80 American faulty have been favorably impacted. This is one of the most successful and enduring educational partnerships in all of Norway.” Kåre R. Aas, Royal Norwegian Embassy, Ambassador to the United States

As alumni, no one knows the importance of ACN more than you! As we build upon ACN’s 25 year history of accomplishments, we remain challenged by limited resources to ensure that future students are also able to benefit from an ACN experience. We strive to provide the very best educational and personal growth experiences at an affordable cost. ACN increasingly depends on alumni giving for the continued evolution of the college as a place where Norway and America truly meet for the benefit of all students.

We are very proud of our alumni and hope we can continue to make you proud of the American College of Norway.

“It is truly gratifying to see the transformation students experience upon completing a term at ACN – they become more confident, they gain insight into themselves, they become global citizens. ACN provided me with one of the most meaningful personal and professional experiences of my life. I want to help pass that on. That is why I give.”

“My semester at ACN, teaching literature in the fall of 2001, was a transformative and liberating experience, and among the most memorable of my thirty year teaching career. For my daughters who accompanied me, and for myself, indelible memories and significant friendships solidified our transatlantic educational journey. The opportunity to become a global citizen, and enjoy a study-abroad experience, is one I wish for everyone.”

Giving my time, energy, and resources to the American College of Norway has always been a natural choice for me. We live in a time when global relationships and international issues are at the heart of every act and decision a person can make. American College of Norway fosters international collaboration of the best kind — collaboration based on meaningful friendships, shared experiences, and strong academics. For me, to change the world, I know I need to invest in the people who make that happen — and the people at American College of Norway are at the top of that list.
