Important First Steps
Matriculation Deposit – Accepted applicants must pay the nonrefundable $100 matriculation deposit by the deadline outlined in their admission letter; the matriculation deposit is credited to the account of the student for the term of admission and cannot be waived or applied to another term. An offer of admission is good for the designated term only and is void if it is not accepted.
Financial Aid – Many graduate students use the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) loans to support their graduate education (HPU School Code 002933). FAFSA loans are managed through the Office of Student Financial Planning, which is located on the first floor of Roberts Hall.
Tuition/Payment Options – Payment for tuition can be made by check, money order or credit card (Mastercard, Discover, and American Express). A convenience fee may be applied to all payments paid by credit card or debit card. The Office of Student Accounts is located on the first floor of Roberts Hall.
Academic Calendar – Mark your calendars with important dates, including new student orientation
New Student Orientation/Registration – Each student will be required to attend a new student orientation prior to the start of the semester.
