The FHU Promise is a last-dollar scholarship, which means it will cover over up to 90% of the comprehensive charge not met by other scholarships, discounts or grants for first time freshmen and transfer students who meet five specific criteria:
Achieve a minimum 21 ACT (1060 SAT),
Achieve a minimum 3.0 cumulative high school GPA,
Receive a Federal PELL Grant award each semester you receive the FHU Promise award
Cannot be combined with athletic scholarship or employee remission, and
Live on campus.
FHU Promise Program
AMOUNT YOU PAY*
No extra fees, no technology fees, no hidden fees
* Room and Board charged separately
** Comprehensive charge for 12 credit hours and above per semester
Freshmen FHU Promise Scholars pay only $775 in tuition and fees (comprehensive charge) per semester PLUS room and board charges. A dorm room currently costs $2,160 per semester and the most popular meal plan is $1,815 per semester. Federal student Stafford loans (or parent PLUS loans) are available to cover these remaining costs as needed.
Upperclassmen FHU Promise Scholars are eligible for additional Stafford loans. FHU Promise will be adjusted based on Stafford loan eligibility.
Under no circumstances will a FHU Promise Scholar have to pay or owe more than $6,250 per semester for tuition, fees, room and board. In rare cases, a student may not benefit from the FHU Promise since it is a last dollar scholarship. For example, an exceptional student with an above average merit award and the maximum in state and federal grants will not receive the FHU Promise because their need was already met.

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.
