HOW IT WORKS

The FHU Promise is a last-dollar scholarship, which means it will cover over 90% of the comprehensive charge not met by other scholarships, discounts or grants for first time freshmen and transfer students who meet four specific criteria:

  • Achieve a minimum 21 ACT (980 SAT),

  • Achieve a minimum 3.0 cumulative high school GPA,

  • Receive a Federal PELL Grant award each semester you receive the FHU Promise award, and

  • Live on campus.

HOW MUCH DO I PAY?

FHU Promise Scholars pay only $775 in tuition and fees per semester PLUS room and board charges not met by state or federal grants. A dorm room currently costs $2,160 per semester and the most popular meal plan is $1,815 per semester. Room & board charges may be covered by additional state or federal grants; however, there is no guarantee.

Under no circumstance will a FHU Promise Scholar have to pay or owe more than $4,750 per semester for tuition, fees, room and board, and in many cases much less.  Guaranteed Federal student Stafford loans (or parent PLUS loans) are available to cover this full amount as needed.

WHY LIVE ON CAMPUS?

Living in a dorm or privileged housing is part of the ultimate college experience and one of the secrets to FHU’s close-knit community. Studies also show dormitory living leads to better classroom performance and lower dropout rates.

 

CAN I KEEP THIS SCHOLARSHIP FOR ALL FOUR YEARS?

Yes, the FHU Promise is guaranteed up to eight (8) semesters as long as the student:

  • Files their FAFSA each year and continues to qualify for a Pell grant,

  • Remains a full-time student (takes at least 12 hours each semester) and lives on campus, and

  • Maintains at least a 2.75 cumulative GPA during the first academic year, and at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA each year thereafter.
