Financial Aid

Making It Possible

More than 95% of Heritage students receive financial aid — and you can, too!

Our Financial Aid office works with you find resources to help fund your education. You’ll have access to state and federal financial aid options found at any public university, including grants, work study and student loans. You’ll also be eligible for additional private aid only available to Heritage students! Plus, Heritage offers other aid options to help pay for additional expenses such as books, child care and transportation. With so many financial aid options, your total cost could end up paying less than another 4-year school.

Here’s another fact: Once students finish their freshman year, financial aid grants tend to increase. And continuing and transfer students often find that 100% of their tuition and fees are covered.

Helping You Afford It

Did You Know: The average financial aid package an HU student receives from all sources is $14,011! *

We believe nothing should stand in the way of your college education, especially finances. Although you may think that Heritage could be financially out of reach, our financial aid packages allow students to get a private education without the high tuition fees that’s expected at other private universities. With loans, grants, scholarships and work study programs, you can reach your goals without putting a financial burden on your life.
