The first step is often the hardest to take, so let’s get started today. Not sure where to begin? Below you will find our no-frills, just-the-facts reasons why Hodges should be the right university for you.

Not convinced a degree is in your future?

“Like many Hodges students, I started my higher educational pursuits later in life and had to balance a full-time job, family, and college. That’s why Hodges University has not only placed the needs of working adults at the center of its efforts to help higher education evolve, but has developed proven strategies to help students succeed in life and in school.

With progressive once-a-month class scheduling, monthly course start dates, combined with accelerated course pacing, we’re rising to meet the returning student halfway with rigorous programs that do not require the time sacrifice traditional colleges do. Additionally, our Core+4 model allows students who have completed 12 credit hours, and who otherwise qualify, to take an additional 4-hour course each session tuition-free.

I believe in scheduling that works as hard as you do, programs designed with your needs in mind, and faculty that is ready to offer support when you need it most. As an alumnus, former Hodges instructor, and former chief academic officer, I came home to advance Hodges University’s goal of supporting every type of student, because I believe in you and your future.”

Dr. John Meyer, Hodges University President & Alumni (B.S. & MBA)
