Three Year Degree Programs Begin 2017
Hiram is proud to launch 19 new three-year degree programs, guaranteeing students can get the classes they need when they need them, and allowing them to save almost $26,000 over the cost of a four-year degree. Graduating early also means starting a career faster.
"The three-year majors are designed to meet the demand of students who are ready and motivated to dive into a Hiram College education year round. The program allows them to take a variety of summer classes at Hiram instead of going elsewhere, which gives them more time to focus on major coursework and other opportunities during the academic year."
Professor of Psychology and Faculty Chair
There is no better resource for future students than our alumni. Please share your love for Hiram with high school students and encourage them to apply to the College. Each student you refer will have the $25 application fee waved. There are also three application grants available for alumni family members: An Alumni Grant for children and grandchildren, a Sibling Grant for brothers and sisters of currently enrolled students, and a Legacy Grant for nieces, nephews and cousins.
