Step By Step Instructions

STEP 1: APPLY

The first step is to apply for admission. Applying for admission at Finlandia University is free. Self report your academic record to get conditionally accepted within 3-days. We’d suggest sitting down at a computer, laptop or tablet, but you can also do it on your cell phone in a pinch.

Apply Now

If you have any questions, call Admissions at 906-487-7263.

STEP 2: SUBMIT ALL INFORMATION

After filling out the application, you will be assigned an enrollment officer who you will receive an initial email from with your next steps. Occasionally, your email settings may place this initial email in a junk/spam folder – make sure you are checking there if you don’t receive an email shortly after your application is submitted.

Transcripts can be sent through Parchment, National Student Clearinghouse, or mailed directly to:

Finlandia University Admissions Department

601 Quincy Street, Hancock, MI 49930

STEP 3: FINANCIAL AID

Going to college is an investment; one of the largest investments people will make in their lifetime. At Finlandia University we know that. We work hard to help you through the process. How? Through entrance and institutional scholarships and amazing Financial Aid staff that are available to help you and your family.

In order to get started and take advantage of all our amazing financial aid opportunities, you’ll need to fill out the FAFSA. Make sure you include Finlandia University in that FAFSA.

Our federal school code – 002322

Wondering what the FAFSA is? Check out our FAFSA Guide.

After you complete the FAFSA (which is and always will be FREE), your Enrollment Officer will reach out to you and discuss your financial aid package in detail. This will take a few days to put together, so be sure to submit all of your information as quickly as possible.

STEP 4: DEPOSIT

After you’ve been accepted, received your financial aid package, and discussed/completed the rest of your admissions checklist with your Enrollment Officer, you’ll want to make your deposit. Your deposit will secure your place for the upcoming semester and is required for course scheduling.

STEP 5: REGISTRATION

Your admissions officer will work closely with you and the registrar’s office to put together the perfect schedule for your first semester.

Learn more about registration at Finlandia University.

STEP 6: HOUSING

All freshmen and sophomores will stay in Finlandia Hall (there are some exclusions, including for local students). It’s a beautiful facility centrally located on campus that features private bathrooms, plenty of space and delicious food.

To start that process, you’ll need to fill out the housing form you will receive once your transcripts are received and your GPA is verified. Look for an email from FinnU Housing once you reach that stage!
