What's the biggest benefit of attending an HBCU?


Definitely that one-on-one time. You get an opportunity to really express yourself to these teachers… It’s a certain feeling at a black college… They want to see you succeed. You realize you’re a lot smarter than you thought.

- Charles Keys, Tuskegee University

Who is Welcome

HBCUs were established primarily to serve the higher education needs of the Black community, however, they are open to students of all ethnicities. Most HBCUs are located in the South and on the East Coast. They award bachelor’s degrees in many fields and many award master and doctorate degrees.

What is an HBCU?

There are just over 100 HBCUs recognized by the US Dept. of Education that include public, private, denominational, liberal arts, land-grant, independent university systems, single-gender serving, researched-based that award Bachelor’s Degrees, Graduate/Masters/Professional Degrees, and Doctoral Degrees offering competitive tuition rates.  

The majority of classes at HBCUs are smaller and are taught by professors rather than teaching assistants, in a nurturing and supportive environment.
