What is The Harrison Difference?

Harrison College prides itself on truly knowing our students—their lives and families, obstacles and motivations, and their dreams and goals. We also know their potential—that is why for more than 100 years, our mission has been to provide a supportive environment with the expectation that their successes also benefit their families, friends and communities. That’s the Harrison Difference. 

"The Harrison Difference is the instructors. They're always caring, and they love their work. They want us to succeed." Arthur, Alum

Our personal approach to education acts as a support system for our students. With more than 3,000 students at 13 locations in Indiana, Ohio, North Carolina and online, Harrison exists to empower students to achieve their own personal successes and bring positive improvements to their lives.

From our experienced and caring faculty to our supportive staff, we offer a close-knit atmosphere that helps provide our students with a sense of belonging and empowerment from day one through graduation.

Harrison is accredited by the Accrediting Council of Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) and is dedicated to excellence in higher learning.
