June 2, 2017

Finlandia University is one of 80 schools nationwide to be recognized by University Research & Review as a 2017 Best Value School.

Best Value School 2017“We work extremely hard to make sure Finlandia University remains affordable to people of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and Midwest as a whole,” said Director of Student Financial Services Sandra Turnquist, who noted that 100 percent of the university’s full-time domestic students received financial aid during the 2016-17 academic year. “We’re one of the most affordable four-year private universities in the Midwest, which is something we’re proud of.”

More about Best Value School

University Research and Review recently put together an article highlighting the 80 schools titled “The Best Value Colleges and Universities You Never Heard Of.” Below is the lead excerpt from it. The full article can be read at webwire.com.

“It’s a major problem when people consider going to college but become discouraged when they see stratospheric cost-to-attend sticker prices. Or they become frustrated with mountains of information while trying to find a college that’s both a good fit and affordable. With these problems in mind the higher education experts at University Research & Review dug deep and came up with a list of 80 schools, each of which meets standards of quality and affordability. Not a ranking, each institution must earn its inclusion in UR&R’s 2017 Best Value College Awards by being subjected to a rigorous process by experts who formerly ran colleges and universities.”

This is the first time Finlandia has been recognized on this list. FinnU was one of five colleges in Michigan to be recognized and the only ELCA college on the list. Learn more about Finlandia’s institutional aid, scholarships and grants by visiting finlandia.edu/affordability.

Founded by former college and university presidents and CEOs, and advised by experienced academics and outside experts, University Research & Review has awarded its Best Value School designations since 2013.
