The Division of Recruitment at HCF introduces its HBCU Admissions and Recruitment Directory. This directory is the ultimate online source for assisting potential college seekers in choosing HBCU.
Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are institutions of higher education that were established before 1964 with the intention of primarily serving the African-American community. Most HBCU's started after the American Civil War as "Normal Schools" to train former black freedmen as teachers. They have always allowed admissions to students of all races.
Currently, there are 107 HBCUs in the United States, which includes public and private institutions, community and four-year institutions, medical and law schools.
Here you will find our partner HBCU institutions who have submitted recruitment information to our organization. The information you will see below is the Office of Admissions or Recruitment contact info, online application link, scholarship information, a video about the institution, and the institutional history.
