Parents & Family Guide for GO
Should I attend Orientation?
We love to have parents attend GO! In order to best accommodate work schedules, the majority of parent activities occur on day 1. You and your student will have the opportunity to learn how HBU will support your student, learn about your students tuition and payment plans, accessing their financial aid and more.
Our goal is to answer any questions you may have about sending your student to HBU. Please note that lunch is free for students and $10 for parents. Payment will be taken during check-in, with either cash or card.
Parent & Family Resources
The first year of college is a season of change and transition for both students and parents. For most parents, the adjustment of no longer having their child at home can be tough. Combining that with new financial aspects that come with someone attending college, parents realize any resource that can be helpful is welcomed. Because of this, HBU has a desire to offer resources to help parents.
Tuition & Payments
One of the most stressful parts about sending your child to college is managing the financial aspect that comes along with it. It often seems there is countless amounts of information one needs to know, and processes to go through to meet your student’s financial obligations. At HBU we have two well equipped and helpful offices to help you with any questions you may have and resources to help navigate the financial aspects of sending a child to college.
- Cashiers Office
The Cashier’s office aims to help provide your family information like how to pay your bill, how to enroll in a payment plan, and other processes involved with tuition payments.
- Financial Aid Office
When trying to obtain financial assistance for the coming school year, HBU’s Financial Aid office is your best on campus resource. They are able to help you sort through how to apply for financial aid as well as answer questions regarding things like FAFSA.
Schedule a financial aid appointment:
Our financial aid and admission counselors are trained and available to meet with you and your student to discuss how to make HBU affordable. You can schedule an appointment Monday-Friday by contacting your Admission Counselor or Financial Aid.
