Howard Payne University, based in Brownwood for over 125 years, has maintained a campus in El Paso since 1991. We are an affordable, private, not-for-profit, Christian University accredited by SACS (the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools). The El Paso Center began as an extension of the School of Christian Studies to offer academic course work and training for those preparing for vocational ministry. In the past several years, the El Paso Center has broadened its course offerings to include a business administration major, criminal justice major, and general studies major as well. Moreover, we now also offer a Master of Business Administration degree and a Master of Education in Instructional Leadership degree.
The El Paso Center holds three academic sessions per year. Fall and spring semesters are 16 weeks in length, with each class most often meeting only once per week. Classes are offered weekdays in the evenings and also on Saturday mornings. The summer session varies from 4 to 8 weeks in length depending upon the course.
Our administrative offices are located at 805 Montana Avenue, El Paso, TX, 79902.
