Heritage University maintains an outreach office at Yakima Valley Community College. Located in Room 245 of Deccio Hall, this office serves as a point of contact for YVCC students to learn about transferring to Heritage as well as a meeting place for Heritage students, faculty and staff.
Heritage University also partners with YVCC on a five year Title V STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) grant to improve the pedagogy and content of Science and Math classes at Wapato High School.
Heritage will help pay for your education, too.
Beginning Fall of 2014, students will be awarded institutional Eagle Scholarship funds as part of financial aid packaging. When these funds are added to federal and state grant eligibility students would need a minimal amount of self-help to cover full-time tuition. Eagle Scholarships support incoming freshman with an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) less than $14,956. The gap between EFC, Federal Pell Grant, Washington State Need Grant, and the student's subsidized Stafford Direct Loan eligibility will be covered by the Eagle Scholarship. This equity model of financial aid packaging allows students to begin their academic programs with predictable financial support as well as mitigate the students need to borrow.
Continuing students will also be eligible for Eagle Scholarship funds. Student that were receiving Heritage Pledge funds in prior years will continue to receive this support until they graduate or exhaust their eligibility.
We encourage all students to complete the Heritage University Academic Scholarship Application for consideration of other merit scholarships. Additional scholarships can be found under Outside Scholarships under the Financial Aid section of the student portal, myHeritage, and on the washboard.org.
In addition, our financial aid specialists are experts at finding funds from other sources. Over 95% of Heritage students receive some form of financial aid, and so could you.
Greater success is closer than you think.
