Each year, Huntington sends out hundreds of men and women with associate, bachelor's and master's degree to impact this world for Christ. Adult students are also offered the opportunity to further their education through our Professional Programs, offered through three locations and online. Small classes offer faculty the opportunity to get to know their students, and the entire campus community helps to nurture students toward success. Students are offered many opportunities to expand their education through internships, study abroad trips and even service opportunities. Tuition is affordable for students, and 90 percent of our students receive some sort of financial aid. We also offer a Loan Repayment Program that provides a safety net for graduates by reimbursing their loan payments based on their income. All incoming freshmen qualify.
