A Higher Education
Inside or outside of the classroom, we give you a foundation you will build upon the rest of your life. Our programs are designed to foster meaningful discussion around the questions that matter, and the ideas that shape the world.
The numbers can be daunting, but dig a little deeper and you will find that most HCU students are eligible for scholarships. Eligibility consideration for most of our merit awards is automatic with your application for admission.
