About the college

The National Hispanic University was founded in 1981. The school’s mission, still today, is to provide quality education for Hispanics, women and other minorities while any student can choose the National Hispanic University, NHU, as their stepping-stone to the future. The multicultural experience gives students the education that they deserve in a career in the fields of business, education and technology. The university is built upon the theories of Sabine Ulibarri, Juan Aragon, Tomas Arciniega and Vincent Tinto.


The university is located in San Jose, California. At the campus, students are looked upon as role models for each other and younger students. The school offers scholarships and financial aid to those who qualify. On campus is a library, a student success program for students transitioning from high school to college and the Student Academic Assistance Center for student support. Students can receive tutoring, small study groups, counseling and career planning and placement services.


At NHU, the education is divided into 8 academic departments. They are business administration, computer science, early childhood education, general studies, liberal studies, mathematics and science, teacher education and translation and interpretation.
