Hodges University -
an Accredited Florida University

Founded in 1990 as International College, Hodges University has established itself as one of the premier private universities in the state of Florida. The name was changed to Hodges University in May 2007 to honor a generous gift by Earl and Thelma Hodges, long-time residents of Naples and avid supporters of the institution.

At Hodges our mission is to offer Associate, Baccalaureate and Graduate degrees as well as other programs that enhance the ability of students to achieve personal or professional objectives. To accomplish this mission our schools offer a variety of academic programs online, on our Fort Myers and Naples campuses and at Learning Sites on the campuses of several colleges in Florida.

Hodges University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award Associate, Bachelor's, and Master's degrees. For questions about the accreditation of Hodges University, contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500. All other inquiries regarding Hodges University's educational programs, admissions requirements, financial aid, etc., should be directed to Hodges University and not to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.
