Siena Heights University

Siena Heights University, founded in 1919, is a Catholic university in the Dominican Tradition.  Beyond our undergraduate residential main campus located in Adrian, Michigan, there are degree completion centers throughout the state and online, plus a Graduate College.  Our small class sizes, close-knit community, extensive campus resources, committed faculty and diverse student population foster high-quality learning, essential-skills development, and meaningful personal growth.  

The new Siena Tuition Advantage price-certainty plan guarantees just one tuition increase in four years of continual enrollment – making Siena both affordable and a great value, too!  Whatever you want to do in the world, Siena Heights University will help you develop the competence, confidence, purpose, and ethics to make it happen.  We call that “The Siena Effect.”
