Dear Prospective Student:

Your interest in learning more about our institution is appreciated.

Huntington University of Health Sciences was founded in 1985 as the American Academy of Nutrition, to meet the tremendous demand for a credible distance education program in nutrition.  In 2018, the name was changed to Huntington University of Health Sciences (HUHS) to reflect the expanded academic offerings.

Our students come from all over the world and include nutrition counselors, homemakers, health food store professionals, registered dietitians, chiropractors, registered nurses, dentists, physicians, massage therapists, psychologists, nutritional product marketers, military personnel, business executives, pharmacists and others seeking to enrich their knowledge of nutrition.


We are proud of our courses as they reflect the tremendous strides that have recently been made in the field of nutrition education. The knowledge you gain from successful completion of your courses will bring you to a new level of health awareness that, if properly applied, should have a profound and lasting effect on your health as well as those you motivate to a healthier lifestyle.

We are also very proud of the fact that HUHS is the first nutrition distance education college to attain accreditation by the  Distance Education Accrediting Commission, the first accrediting agency for distance education recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.


You can study and learn at your own pace, at a time and location that is best for you and at a considerable savings versus the tuition of most traditional universities. That’s why more than three million Americans are currently advancing their knowledge through accredited independent study.

After you have reviewed our website, please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions or for additional information. We look forward to having the opportunity to welcome you to our student body.
