Surprisingly Affordable


Private colleges like Huntington are not just for wealthy families. It might surprise you to learn that, in a typical year, about 40% of HU freshman report a combined household income under $50,000. We offer Financial Aid to more than 90% of our students. 

Tuition, fees, room and board rates are established annually in the spring for the succeeding year. Prices are moderated through the generosity of friends and alumni of the University and the supporting denomination who annually contribute over 25% of the University’s operating costs. As a result, tuition and fees provide only 75% of the cost of educating a student.

In addition, many students are provided financial assistance in meeting the price of attending the University. Approximately 90% of the students receive financial aid in the form of scholarships, grants, loans, or work-study assistance. Such assistance is primarily available only to those who file a FAFSA by the preferred submission date and is usually limited to full-time students in good standing.
