Semester-Based vs Self-Paced
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 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. This means that all of your course documents will be made available to you on your official start date, and you have the benefit of working at your own pace.
Self-Paced programs are not eligible for Federal Financial Aid.
Statement of Non-Discrimination
HUHS does not discriminate on the basis of race, age, color, sex, religion, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin, veteran status, or condition of disability in the admission of students or the administration of its educational policies or programs.
Denial of Admission
