International Students

Finlandia is a fully-accredited, small, private university located in Michigan’s beautiful Upper Peninsula near Lake Superior.

We offer undergraduate (bachelor’s) degrees in International Business, Nursing, Art & Design, and Liberal Arts, in a safe, small-town environment. We look forward to making you welcome here!

English Language Program (ESL)

We have an on-campus English Language Program for students who have not taken an English Proficiency Exam, or whose score is too low for direct admission into a degree program.  Students may spend one to four semesters in the English Language Program, depending on their skill level at time of admission.
