  • Season's Greetings from HU President
    On behalf of the Harrisburg University students, faculty and staff, I wish you a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season. As the calendar year draws to a close, Harrisburg University’s commitment to providing access to science and technology education for all students is stronger than ever. The University has kept the total cost of education as low as possible. Our annual tuition price is $5,400 lower than the average cost of Pennsylvania private universities. And, we have not raised our tuition price in three years. In order to provide access to as many students as possible HU provides institutional scholarships to 98% of its students. Much of the aid is unfunded. In addition to financial help, HU provides life and study services to all of its students.
