Siena Heights University is introducing its new SHU Global brand that encompasses the educational experience for professional working students.

SHU Global is the culmination of more than 45 years of delivering quality and affordable academic programs where students are in their lives and careers. That originally meant offering undergraduate and graduate programs at one of SHU’s several Michigan locations. Since 2004, it now includes SHU’s nationally ranked Online Program.

Here are the characteristics of the SHU Global experience:

  • 7-week course delivery, 6 start dates per year
  • Generous credit for work experience
  • The Siena Tuition Advantage fixed pricing plan
  • The flexibility of on-ground, hybrid or online classes
  • Qualified online career counseling
  • Personalized advising every step of the student journey
  • Quality faculty who integrate theory into practice
  • The unique and distinctive Bachelor of Applied Science degree
  • An impressive selection of undergraduate and graduate degree and certificate programs

For the eighth consecutive year, SHU’s undergraduate Online Learning Program was ranked nationally by the U.S. News and World Report. And for the fifth consecutive year, Siena Heights was the top-rated in Michigan among all institutions. Siena Heights tied for 34th among all public and private institutions.

SHU Global’s unique Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree builds on the AAS major students have completed through college study, work experience and/or training. Degrees are available in allied health, public safety, technical and other specialized occupational fields.

SHU Global also offers bachelor’s degrees in Accounting, Business Administration, Community and Human Services, Multidisciplinary Studies, Professional Communication and RN to BSN, with master’s degrees available in Business Administration (MBA), Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Health Care Leadership, Higher Education Leadership, Nursing (MSN) and Organizational Leadership.

The Siena Tuition Advantage price certainty plan provides a two-year fixed tuition plan for all SHU Global students. SHU Global also partners with businesses and organizations to provide tuition discounts for employees and students.
