Huntingdon College

Huntingdon College is a private, co-educational liberal arts learning institution located in Montgomery, Alabama. Founded in 1854, the college has strong ties with the United Methodist Church and was initially chartered as an all-female college. It was not until 1934 when the first male student was allowed to enroll in Huntingdon. Since then, the college has remained co-educational.

Known and respected for its high-quality business and science programs, Huntingdon College grants Bachelor of Arts and Master’s Degrees in a variety of majors through its distinct and distinguished Departments of Art, Biology, Business & Accounting, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Communication Studies, History, Language & Literature, Mathematics, Music, Political Science, Psychology, Religion, Sport Studies and Physical Education and Teacher Education. Various majors and minors are available in these departments for students to choose from in the pursuit of their professional degrees.

For academic year 2009-2010, the cost of tuition and fees totals US$28,490 for fulltime undergraduate students living on campus. This cost includes full-year tuition of US$19,990 and room and board plus required fees at US$8,500. It does not include the cost of books and supplies. To help students pay for their tuition, financial aid is extended by the college in the form of loans, grants and scholarships for qualified students.

Huntingdon College adheres to the belief that learning should go beyond classroom walls. It thus welcomes and encourages on-campus residence as a means for students to live in community with one another thereby allowing them to interact and learn from each another. Various types of on-campus housing accommodations are available to students interested to avail themselves of the service.
