HIU Again Designated as One of the Nation's "Best Value" Colleges

Posted: January 7, 2019


For the second consecutive year, Hope International University again has been named a Best Value College for 2018-2019, one of only 56 institutions nationally. prides itself on their review of academics, student life and student opinions, and compares that with financial outcomes data to share which programs may be the most valuable for students.

“The goal of compiling this list was to offer suggestions to individuals of all ages interested in college that there are very good schools where students are happy and costs are reasonable. Many of the thousand-plus schools were eliminated because of their high cost to attend; others because their students and alumni had less than complimentary things to say about their school. For 2018-2019 there are fifty-six colleges and universities that withstood rigorous examinations and earned the Best Value designation.”

The University’s 1,300 current students are racially diverse, 30% are over the age of 24, and almost 30% of the undergraduates and 40% of the graduate students attend part-time. More than 96% of the student body receives aid.

Hope International University has four locations: the main campus in Fullerton, California; the Anaheim campus is for online courses and graduate students, and two additional locations are in Nebraska and Washington State.
