Thousands of men and women loyally serve this country each year in the armed forces. As a way to say thank you, the Professional Programs at Huntington University has lowered the cost of its degree programs for active-duty military personnel. Beginning in Fall 2011, tuition was reduced to $250 per credit hour for all 100 and 200-level courses for active-duty military personnel and their dependents.
Huntington University has taken this step in a difficult economy to recognize the contributions our military personnel are making for our country, often at significant personal sacrifice. We are proud to provide a Christ-centered, nationally-recognized educational experience at a price that will make this a viable option for military families.
Numerous military personnel have enrolled in the Professional Programs since its inception in 1993 because of its reputation for quality education and the high standards it sets for its students. Senior Master Sgt. John Furge, a 2005 Professional Programs graduate, used the program to finish his bachelor’s degree in organization management while continuing his career in the 122nd Fighter Wing of the Indiana Air National Guard in Fort Wayne, Ind. Chief Master Sgt. Tim Tolentino, also of the Fighter Wing, transferred to the program after discovering the convenience of the onsite classes and the quality of the professors.
“The flexibility that I had through Huntington fit perfectly with my schedule especially as a military person. They understood that sometimes duty calls,” said Tolentino, a 2007 graduate. “They took into consideration that we were working people and that we were fitting education into our schedule, but they still made it challenging. They empower you to learn.”
