Celebrate with us and check out our list of the top HBCUs that offer healthcare programs for 2019-2020! We want to congratulate all the historically black colleges and universities on our list and all the great healthcare programs that they offer! Historically black colleges and universities are institutions of higher education in the United States that were established before the Civil Rights Act of 1964 with the intention of primarily serving the African-American community. Because the many of the predominantly white institutions of higher education disqualified African Americans from enrollment, it became necessary to have all black colleges and universities during the period of segregation in the United States prior to the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Make sure you also check out our scholarship below that we are awarding to a lucky student who is attending one of the HCBUs on the list’s healthcare programs. The submission form is below and we will be awarding the scholarship on 10/1/2020. All submissions must be in by 9/15/2020. Also, be sure to check out our healthcare scholarship that we award annually along with our guide to databases of scholarship opportunities!

Top HBCUs That Offer Healthcare Programs Ranking Methodology

To be eligible for our ranking list of the top HBCUs that offer healthcare training programs, the school must be an existing historically black college or university that offers at least one healthcare related program to their students. We then took the most current data from for net price, transfer rate, graduation rate, school size, student population and program types to come up with what we feel is a great look at what the best options for for healthcare training when attending a historical black college or university. After compiling the data, we then ranked each respective school school in each category and came up with our ranking list. For schools that did not report their data (for example: transfer rate) we gave the average score for that category. That way we were not penalizing the school entirely but were also showcasing the schools that did report all their data.
