If you are at least 24 years of age and thinking about attending college to complete your bachelor’s degree, the Hollins Horizon Program may be the right choice for you.

As a Horizon student, Hollins’ entire undergraduate offerings — from art to biology, English to psychology — are available to you. Schedule your visit or contact the Office of Admission to discuss the Horizon Program at 1-800-456-9595 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
