    Howard Payne is expensive, but I personally think it's worth every penny. The level of care and personal touch that you receive at HPU is second to none.

    Howard Payne is only a school for pre majors or sports. Because their pre majors and sports are good, I believe thats the only reason why many people are here. This is not a school in which you would stay all four years to obtain a Bachelor's degree in whatever it is you study.

    Like any private college, tuition is more than a state funded school; but HPU offers many scholarship and grant opportunities-plus, the education I'm getting is worth it.

    It is expensive but I don't regret one penny I will spend. The people and the environment make up for it. The one on one help I get from teachers are awesome. They want to be involved and help in any way. The small school atmosphere is the best.
