Tuition, Fees, and Associated Costs
At this time, Huntingdon College does not provide scholarships for Master of Athletic Training Program students. However, various scholarship opportunities are available through outside resources. The National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA), Southeastern Athletic Trainers Association (SEATA), and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) are just a few organizations that often accept applications for scholarships from athletic training students. Students are encouraged to seek out these opportunities. Contact Dr. Ballard for information regarding scholarship possibilities.
Huntingdon College does not provide financial assistance at the graduate level, however student loans are available. To learn your loan eligibility, submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at fafsa.ed.gov.
NOTE: Huntingdon’s institutional code is 001019. Please include this information on your FAFSA.
Graduate Student Loans
There are three types of loans available for graduate study: Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans; Federal Graduate PLUS Loans; and private student loans.
- Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loans – Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loans allow graduate students to borrow up to $20,5000 per year with aggregate limits. Federal loans allow a grace period before repayment begins and do not require you to qualify based on our need. To get more information about Federal student loans, please visit StudentAid.gov/loans. Students interested in borrowing a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan will need to complete Federal Loan Entrance Counseling and the Federal Direct Loan Master Promissory Note (MPN) for Graduate students. [Download Entrance Counseling & MPN Instructions (pdf)]
- Federal Direct PLUS Loans—Eligible graduate or professional students who need to borrow more than the maximum unsubsidized loan amounts to meet their educational costs may apply for a PLUS loan. A credit check will be completed during the application process. [Download 2022-2023 Grad PLUS Packet (pdf) or the 2023-2024 Grad PLUS Packet (pdf)]
- Private Education Loans – Private loans vary in loan limits, interest rates, and payback options. In general, Federal loans provide better interest rates than private loans. Before borrowing, find out interest rates available based on your credit score to weigh your options.
Information on Books and Supplies
If the financial aid award you receive for attendance in the Huntingdon College Graduate program exceeds the amount necessary for payment of tuition and fees, you may qualify to charge your Huntingdon College student account for your books purchased at the Huntingdon College bookstore. Upon notification from the bookstore of the book purchase, your Huntingdon College student account will be charged.
Specific book information per course (including ISBN), whether required or recommended, is published online at https://www.huntingdon.edu/book-list/. It is displayed by term, course, and section as indicated in the College’s schedule of classes.
Billing and Payment Information
Prior to the beginning of each semester, pre-registered students receive statements of estimated charges. The estimated balance is due the first day of classes.
Each student signs a promissory note acknowledging his or her understanding of the responsibility to pay all charges incurred during enrollment at Huntingdon College, even if these charges are not reflected on estimated billings.
Students are not permitted to attend classes until their financial affairs are arranged. If a student’s account becomes delinquent, the College may withdraw permission for the student to attend classes. In the event that a student’s account is not paid in full (or satisfactory payments are not being made) by the end of the semester, Huntingdon College reserves the right to withdraw permission for the student to attend classes the next semester until financial arrangements have been made.
There are two payment options:
- Pay the estimated semester balance in full by the stated deadline on the College’s calendar.
- Enroll in the College’s Deferred Payment Plan (payments are due according to the payment schedule provided).
The Huntingdon College Deferred Payment Plan allows students to pay educational expenses in monthly installments. The fee for payment plan enrollment is $250 annually. Students who do not enroll in the Deferred Payment Plan but who do not pay the semester balance in full by the published deadline are charged the $250 Plan Fee annually and are automatically placed on the Deferred Payment Plan. Students who attend only one semester during an academic year are charged the full fee.
Students enrolled in the Huntingdon College Deferred Payment Plan receive a payment schedule with the signed promissory note. Failure to remit payment(s) in accordance with the provided statement schedule will result in a late payment fee of $30, charged to the student’s account. A late payment fee is charged for each delinquent payment.

Online Student Account Payments
Graduate Students wishing to withdraw must contact the Registrar’s office to begin the withdrawal process. The Office of the Registrar reviews the completed submissions and forwards the information to Student Financial Services regarding the official date of the enrollment change(s). The Office of Student Financial Services will determine if a Return of Title IV aid is necessary.
If a student voluntarily withdraws from Huntingdon College during a semester, the College will follow federal guidelines to determine the amount of federal aid the student has earned based on the percentage of the semester completed. Federal guidelines state that once a student has completed more than 60% of the semester, they have earned all federal aid for that period of enrollment. For a student who has completed 60% or less, Huntingdon College is required to prorate the amount of federal aid based on the percentage of the semester completed (calculated using the last date of attendance). An example of a return to Title IV calculation is available upon request.
Students will be credited back 100% of tuition for any class(es) never attended. Students will be assessed tuition at a rate of 100% after attending a class.
