Howard Payne University has maintained a campus in El Paso since 1991. The El Paso Center began as an extension of the School of Christian Studies to offer academic coursework and training for those preparing for vocational ministry. In the past several years, the El Paso Center has broadened its course offerings to include our present business administration major and criminal justice major to provide secular degree programs in a distinctively Christian setting.
The El Paso Center holds three academic sessions per year. Fall and Spring semesters are about 16 weeks in length with each class meeting once per week. Classes are offered weekday evenings and Saturday mornings. The summer session is about 8 weeks in length with each class meeting twice per week.
