HLGU Student Handbook 2022-23

For general sickness, students are encouraged to stay in their dorm room and rest. They are also encouraged to contact their resident advisor who can work out a plan to provide your child with food and water while staying in. For more serious illnesses, resident advisors or resident directors are equipped to provide transportation to the Hannibal Clinic or Hospital.

100% of HLGU students qualify for financial aid. You can find scholarship and grant information on the Scholarships and Aid website page under financial aid.

We want campus to feel like home, but also keep all students safe. You can find a suggested list of what to bring (and what not to bring) on the Residential Life website page.
