Hodges University Offers New Scholarship Opportunities for Students

Hodges University News

Hodges University has substantially increased the amount of institutional financial aid available to incoming students. Students may qualify for either a needs-based or merit-based scholarship ranging from $500 to $2,200 for the fall 2016 term.

“Obtaining a college degree is one of the largest single investments individuals make, and we strongly believe a Hodges University education is well worth the investment,” said Brent Passey, vice president of enrollment management. “However, we are always looking for ways to make education more affordable for our students, and these new scholarships are a step in that direction.”

In addition, as part of an ongoing academic program review initiative, Hodges is making changes to its program offerings effective with the start of the fall 2016 term.

“As a private, nonprofit university founded in Southwest Florida, it is our responsibility to align our academic programs to best serve the educational needs of our region,” said Dr. Donald Wortham, president of Hodges University. “By developing new programs, refocusing on potential growth areas and pausing low-enrollment offerings, we are able to be more strategic and student centered in our approach to providing academic excellence and affordability.”

The program changes include a new Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) program that prepares students to take the Florida Nursing Assistant Certification Examination and awards them six associate degree credits upon completion of the program.

Focus will be placed on the recently developed bachelor’s degree program in marketing and professional sales, which combines marketing fundamentals and strategy with professional sales concepts and marketplace practices. The curriculum for the degree aligns with the requirements of the Sales Education Foundation (SEF)

The Bachelor of Science in finance program is another area of emphasis. Students in the program are able to observe the interaction of market concepts and behaviors through simulated activities in the university’s BB&T Finance Lab.

As part of its newly expanded mission, Hodges University’s Identity Fraud Institute will offer non-credit programs in data privacy and identity theft restoration.

Programs being put on hiatus because of low demand are health information management (Associate of Science), communications and marketing (Bachelor of Science), business informatics (Bachelor of Science) and information systems management (Bachelor of Science). The bachelor’s degree program in computer networking will be a concentration under the Bachelor of Science in computer information technology program.
