Spring Arbor University was established in southern Michigan in 1873 by leaders of the Free Methodist Church. Today, student living recalls these routes with required chapel services twice weekly, though the school has changed in innumerable other ways. Over the past two decades, Spring Arbor has begun degree completion programs for adult learners, developed degrees, in several health-related fields and introduced graduate education. In addition, student housing is now available near the university's main campus in Spring Arbor, Michigan, as well as near extension sites in Bettle Creek, Bay City, Centerville, Flint, Gaylord, Grand Rapids, Michigan, Howell, Jackson, Kalamazoo, Lansing, Detroit, Toledo, Niles, Petoskey, Traverse City and Troy. With such expansion, SAU has become the largest Evangelical Christian university in the state, and a popular choice among both undergraduates and graduate students.

SAU offers more than 70 undergraduate majors at its Spring Arbor campus, as well as Elementary Teacher certification in conjunction with nearby community colleges. Among its regional campuses, the university offers five on-site Master's programs, in Business Administration, Family Studies, Education, Management, and Counseling.
