The first step is to apply for admission. It takes about 10 minutes. Self report your academic record to get conditionally accepted within 3-days. For priority consideration, please begin the application process as early as possible. To assure full consideration for financial aid opportunities, refer to the financial aid priority dates.
Below are the steps you need to take to start your collegiate career here at FinnU!
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.
If you have any questions, we’re more than happy to help you. Fill out this form, and one of our admissions officers will be in touch.
After filling out the application, you will be assigned an admissions officer, who will help you throughout all of the next steps. One of the first things he or she will say is that you need to get all of your information in as soon as possible. Below is the checklist:
Official High School Transcripts
Official College Transcripts (if needed)
Official ACT or SAT scores
The Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR) is a list of your courses and associated grades that have been completed or will be completed for high school or college credit. The SRAR is optional but replaces the official high school transcript during the Admissions Committee review process. Since accuracy is critical, please have an electronic version of your official grade report or an official high school transcript to reference as you are completing the SRAR. To be officially accepted you will need to submit official transcripts to the admissions office.
After you complete the FAFSA (which is and always will be FREE), our financial aid staff will be in touch with you about your financial aid package. This will take a few days to put together, so be sure to submit all of your information as quickly as possible.
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 your admissions officer provides you. It won’t take long to get started, and the residential life staff is available to answer any questions you may have.
You’ve been accepted. You’re registered. You know where you’re living. Now it’s time to start packing your bags, buying your books and pay your first semester’s tuition bill. Contact our Student Accounts staff to pay your bill.
GENERAL ADMISSIONS CONTACTS
If you’re looking to talk to someone, Finlandia University’s admissions staff is filled with people who have done it before, and are prepared to help you answer questions regarding applying, financial aid, our academic and athletic programs, and maybe even the best place to find a waterfall in Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula.
