Herzing University was founded in 1965 by Henry and Suzanne Herzing. It was primarily a computer programming school but has, since then, evolved into an institution of higher education that awards diplomas on a wide range of professional disciplines in the fields of business, technology, health care, design and public safety. From its humble roots in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the school has now branched out and has eleven campuses in the United States, four satellite campuses in Canada (Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Winnipeg), and a distance-learning division.
Herzing’s Online division offers undergraduate diplomas and degrees in the fields of Business, Technology, Graphic Design, and Safety. The online graduate degrees, however, are limited only to Master of Business Administration and Master of Science in Nursing. Tuition fees are at $425.00 per credit unit for undergraduate and graduate programs, and this amount already covers the cost of textbooks.
Financial aid, in the form of grants, loans, and scholarships is available to eligible students. Students who are in active military duty may be qualified to receive a discount on tuition, and in some cases, military discounts may be extended to include dependent family members (parents, spouse, children). To find out more about the financial assistance options available, contact the University’s financial aid office.
The procedure and requirements for admission to Herzing’s online programs are not standardized. Undergraduate programs have different requirements to graduate programs, the same way International Students may have to submit more documentation than students who hold US citizenship or are permanent residents of the United States. To know what the exact admission requirements are, contact the Herzing University admissions office.
Herzing University both the campus and its online division – is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association.
