Henderson, Tennessee – (Nov. 9, 2023) – In continuing its commitment to providing accessible and affordable college education, Freed-Hardeman University introduces the groundbreaking FHU Promise Program, designed to cover the financial gap for qualified students.

The FHU Promise Program guarantees that qualified, first-time freshmen and transfer students will not have to pay or owe more than $9,500 during their freshman year after all other scholarships, discounts and grants have been applied. This amount will be adjusted based on Stafford Loan eligibility in subsequent years, ensuring that FHU remains committed to keeping the dream of higher education within reach.

President David R. Shannon shared his enthusiasm, stating, “At FHU, we believe in the transformative power of education. The FHU Promise Program is a testament to our commitment to student success and our dedication to providing a high-quality education that is both accessible and affordable.”

In order to be automatically considered for this scholarship, applicants must first meet specific criteria, including a minimum national ACT composite score of 21 (or 1060 SAT; Reading/Writing and Math) and a 3.0 cumulative high school GPA. They should also receive a Federal Pell Grant award and be admitted before May 15.

The FHU Promise Program is a testament to FHU’s dedication to its students, ensuring that finances do not stand in the way of academic excellence. FHU invites prospective students to embark on their educational journey with confidence, knowing that FHU Promise has their financial well-being in mind.
