One of Hiram College’s most unique features is its unusual academic calendar. Hiram divides the year into two 15-week semesters, which are in turn divided into 12-week and 3-week terms. In the 12-week term, you take three courses, and in the 3-week term, you focus on one intensive course or internship.
This schedule, which is known as the Hiram Plan, allows for more detailed and in-depth coursework. It reflects Hiram College’s commitment to improving its academics by thinking unconventionally. The school also offers a Weekend College as another form of nontraditional learning.
Student life at Hiram reflects the college’s innovative attitude. With over 70 student clubs, organizations and athletic teams, there are plenty of ways to get involved. Greek life is also present on campus, taking the form of “Greek social clubs” rather than traditional fraternities and sororities.
Hiram College follows a “need-blind” admissions policy, meaning it does not take financial circumstances into consideration. In accordance with this policy, the school offers extensive need-based financial aid, both from government grants and from within the institution. For example, the Hiram College Grant and Disciples of Christ Grant are need-based awards; however, the school also funds merit awards like the Trustee Scholarship.
