The executive Hybrid program was developed for career-minded individuals.  It is a blend of online learning with more traditional face-to-face teaching methods, including on-campus lectures, group projects, immersion trips, and workplace consulting projects. The structure will be a physically meeting on campus 3 times on a Saturday during the 14-week semester with set dates found in the academic calendar. The class hours are dependent on what you register for; either 8 am-12 pm or 1 p.m.-5 p.m.  Students may register for one on-campus course and one online course.    Missing a physically required meeting date on campus has serious consequences and puts an international student’s legal status in jeopardy. International students are only required to be on campus 3 times a semester for the duration of their studies at HU.

Saturday classes run from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Make a Deposit

The semester cost for the two-year six-semester International Student Graduate program is currently $5,300. If you are accepted into the program, you will receive an acceptance letter. In the days following your acceptance, your Student ID number will be sent to you via separate correspondence. You will need that Student ID number to make your deposit online. Choose the option that best describes you below to see more information about making a deposit.

In the U.S. or not changing status:

Make your non-refundable $1,000 USD tuition deposit online. The non-refundable deposit will be applied to your first-semester tuition and can be done online using a credit card.

Once you have completed your non-refundable deposit, you may pay any remaining tuition and fees online. Your tuition and fee balance must be paid at least one week before classes start and can also be done online using a credit card. The University does not offer an installment payment plan for international students.

Overseas or changing status:

A $200 USD deposit is required to request your I-20. Once your $200 USD deposit is received and your HU Login Credentials are issued, you can request an Initial SEVIS Form I-20 by following these instructions.

If Your Visa Application is Denied

You may submit a written request for a refund of your deposit within four months from the date of your payment. Please do NOT phone or email the university requesting the status of your I-20.

Receiving Your I-20

Information about I-20s, accommodations, registration, and other materials will arrive to you from the University’s Compliance and SEVIS office via email at a future date. It typically takes three weeks to receive your I-20.

When you receive your I-20, a SEVIS ID is on the form (N and 10 digits). You will be required to pay a $350 USD I-901 fee to SEVIS using your SEVIS number.

Scheduling Your Visa Appointment

Once you’ve paid your I-901 fee, schedule your visa appointment. Be sure to take the receipt for your I-901 SEVIS fee payment along with your passport, HU Initial I-20, and Acceptance Letter.

Entering the United States

Once you have entered the United States, you must report your arrival to the International Student Office by completing the Arrival and Check-In Form.  You will be required to upload copies of your F-1 visa stamp, I-94, HU I-20 and passport bio page.

Then make your non-refundable $1,000 USD tuition deposit online, finalize your travel itinerary to the U.S. and arrange your housing.
