So that students may balance studying with fun, Calhoun also has more than 20 student organizations, which include a broadcasting club, a drama club, a music club and a Native American Student Association. Calhoun also has a student-operated television station.
Calhoun’s tuition is substantially reduced for in-state residents. Students may also get scholarships, loans and veteran’s benefits. Students are encouraged to fill out a FAFSA after applying for admission. All entering students must also take an entrance exam.
