In addition to student loans, HU offers interest-free payment plans for balances that can be paid within 10 months. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid at (800) 642-6493 for more information.

Huntington University is dedicated to providing assistance to our full-time students and we have a variety of academic and performance award opportunities available. While the majority of our awards are based on student achievement, we also recognize financial need and do have need based grant aid available for those who qualify.

To be considered for need-based financial aid, the student must be regularly admitted to Huntington and must have completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which can be filed by going online at studentaid.gov. The FAFSA should be completed by April 15. The school code for Huntington University is 001803.

The Office of Financial Aid is available to answer your questions and to help estimate your eligibility for financial assistance. Feel free to email or call (260) 359-4326 or toll free at (800) 642-6493. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
