Information for Canadians

College vs. University

In the United States, the terms “college” and “university” have different meanings than in Canada. For example, both universities and colleges in the U.S. offer four-year bachelor’s degrees, while a “college” in Canada typically denotes a trade school or a university-preparatory school (similar to “community college” in the U.S.).

As Houghton College offers four-year bachelor’s degrees, we are akin to a university in Canada.  Houghton College is fully accredited and nationally recognized.

Financial Aid

At Houghton College we are committed to helping Canadian students afford completing their degree.  A financial aid advisor will work with you each step of the way.
