Huron University is committed to improving access to higher education. Each year it makes $4,500,000 available for scholarships for students based on financial needs and academic achievement. The scholarship covers the full annual tuition (based on a full course load) for the recipients. Tuition fees are based on credit hours ($400 per credit hour), and a full-time student takes 30 credit hours per year. Fixed costs of administering the scholarship program are $600,000 per year.
