About Hiram College

The mission of Hiram College is to foster intellectual excellence and social responsibility enabling our students to thrive in their chosen careers flourish in life and face the urgent challenges of the times.

Hiram is a coeducational liberal arts college of about 1,300 men and women located in the historic Western Reserve region of Ohio.Students come from 35 states and 30 countries and represent more than 25 different religions. Hiram is a nationally respected institution that offers students a distinct learning environment with an emphasis on close student-faculty interactions, international study experiences, and experiential learning environments.

What makes Hiram distinctive?

There are many things, but the following six features are standouts:

Faculty: Hiram faculty members are more than just master educators. They care about you. They'll know your name. And they'll work with you individually to ensure you achieve the best education.

Academic Calendar: Our semesters are divided into two sections: a long (12-week) session during which you take a few classes, followed by a short (3-week) session, during which you take just one intensive class.

Writing Across the Curriculum: It doesn't matter what career you choose, you need to know how to write. So Hiram ensures that its entire curriculum – every major and career track – develops and hones your writing ability. If your writing isn't the best, we'll help you improve. If your writing is already good, it will get even better.

Education that Works: Hiram's education works, because you learn by doing. You won't just read textbooks in the classroom. You'll do real research. You'll "intern" in various careers. You'll connect with alumni and CEOs in the business world. You'll have first-hand experience and connections before you even graduate.

International Experiences: Even though your home is overseas, you will want to participate in our study abroad program. Hiram's faculty lead study trips to six continents. The curriculum is directed north, south, east, and west, providing a diverse array of courses to give you some new experiences in other countries and cultures.

Tuition Guarantee: Your family can plan its finances because Hiram's guarantee ensures that your annual cost for tuition will not increase from the first through fourth year of your enrollment at Hiram.

Hiram College Global Scholarships

International applicants are eligible to compete for merit-based Global Scholarships. In the current year, Global Scholarship awards average $18,000 per year for on-campus residents.
