Congratulations on your decision to apply for admission to one of the programs and/or courses offered at Huntington University of Health Sciences (HUHS).

Prerequisites

An applicant for a diploma program, the associate’s program, or bachelor’s program must have a high school diploma or its equivalent. American College Test (ACT) and Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) scores are not required.

 

Semester-Based vs Self-Paced

Semester-Based:

HUHS operates on a Standard Academic Year, which includes a Fall and Spring semester with an optional Summer session. Each semester consists of two 8-week modules and financial aid is disbursed accordingly per module. The optional Summer session consists of one 8-week module. Most students will take 2 classes each 8-week module. The Summer term is only one 8-week module. Students will take 1 or 2 classes during this time.

Self-Paced:

Self-Paced offers the convenience of rolling enrollment, so you can sign up and take classes year-round without having to wait for formal semester start and ends dates. Each course is 16-weeks long, but are designed to be completed within 8-weeks. The way this works is, when your class starts all the assignments are made available to you on Day 1. You have the pleasure to work as fast or slow as you want.

Self-Paced programs are not eligible for Federal Financial Aid.
