It provides details on general eligibility requirements, as it relates to receiving financial aid.

Attention Scholarship Recipients!

HU Admissions Scholarship Policy is as follows: The total financial package for students who receive scholarships through the Office of Admission and the Athletic Department; the sum total of all gift aid (i.e. grants, scholarships, stipends, and other assistance), regardless of source, cannot exceed the direct cost (tuition, fees, room and board) of education at the University. In such cases, the scholarship award will be reduced appropriately. All scholarship recipients are required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application and apply for financial aid each academic year.

Your financial aid package is primarily intended to pay your direct, billable costs, first!

Customer service is very important to us!
