What are the admission requirements? What if I don’t meet those requirements?
The admission requirements for a first-time student are at least a 2.25 GPA from high school and at least a 19 on the ACT or 900 on the SAT. Transfer students will need to check with their admissions counselor to verify the acceptance criteria for the specific number of hours they will be transferring. If you do not meet the minimum admission requirements, that does not automatically disqualify you from being admitted. If either your GPA or ACT/SAT scores are below admission requirements, you will enter the Committee Review Process, in which you will be asked to write a letter to the Academic Committee explaining how you plan to be successful as a college student at FHU. You will also be asked to provide two academic reference letters from a former teacher, guidance counselor, or someone else who knows you in an academic context.
When should I apply and when will I know if I’ve been accepted?
You can apply as early as your junior year of high school. Once you have submitted your application you should have your guidance counselor send a minimum 3-year transcript and any ACT/SAT scores that you have up to this point. Once we have received your application, transcript(s), and test score(s), we will evaluate your scores against admission criteria. If you are admitted, you will receive a letter of acceptance 7-10 days after all items are received.
When can I register for classes?
Every spring and summer the Office of Admissions hosts early registration events for incoming freshmen/new students for the following fall. These events allow you to schedule a time to meet with an academic advisor and register for your fall classes. If you can’t join us for one of these early registration events, you can register over the phone. If you choose to register over the phone, notify your admissions counselor so he or she can send your file to the Office of Academic Success for evaluation. Once the academic advisor evaluates your file, he or she will write an academic prescription for you with course recommendations and contact you about setting up a registration appointment.
What is the application deadline?
We do not have an application deadline. We will make every effort to work with a student on his or her admission right up to the time that classes begin. There are advantages to early application, but students will not be penalized for submitting a late application.
Does FHU require the written portion of the ACT/SAT?
FHU does not require or accept the scores from the written portion of the ACT/SAT.
What are the foreign language requirements? Math requirements? Science requirements?
FHU does not have any special requirements for foreign languages, math, or science for students who graduate from an accredited public or private high school. Students who are homeschooled must meet the requirements outlined on page 21 of the 2014-2015 Undergraduate Catalog. All students are expected to meet the requirements for high school graduation as determined by their state of residence.
How many students are enrolled at FHU? What is the student-to-teacher ratio?
There are currently 1490 undergraduate and 502 graduate students enrolled at FHU. We have a 15:1 student-to-teacher ratio.
Is financial aid available?
Absolutely! Financial aid benefits 90% of FHU students. Merit grants and scholarships are available for all students who have been accepted and meet academic requirements. Federal loans, grants, and work-study are also available for students who qualify and submit the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).
How much does it cost to attend FHU?
For the 2016-17 school year, the cost for a full time student living on campus will be $29,450 per year. This includes room, board, and a comprehensive charge. The comprehensive charge is designed to increase transparency by eliminating extra fees and allowing students to take as many hours as allowed within academic policy for one block price. For more information, click here.
Do I have to live on campus?
All single students who do not live with parents or other relatives are required to live on campus. Any exceptions to this are by special permission from the Dean of Students only.
Is there a deadline for the housing preference form?
There is not a specific deadline for the housing form. However, housing is usually assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. Housing cannot be assigned until an applicant is admitted, has submitted a housing preference form, and has paid the enrollment deposit.
What is the enrollment deposit?
The enrollment deposit confirms that you are planning to enroll at FHU and guarantees you a place in our incoming class. The $250 deposit is due May 1 for the summer and fall terms and November 1 for the winter and spring terms. Deposits received after the deadline are accepted only if space is available in the incoming class. This is not an additional fee, but rather a down payment which is applied to your first semester bill. The enrollment deposit is refundable until April 1 for the summer and fall terms and November 1 for the winter and spring terms. No refund will be given after these dates. Requests for refund of enrollment deposits must be submitted to the Director of Admissions at email@example.com.
Is FHU religiously affiliated?
FHU is affiliated with the church of Christ. About 83% of the student body are members of the church of Christ. The other 17% come from a variety of religious backgrounds.
