After filling out the application, you will be assigned an enrollment officer who you will receive an initial email from with your next steps.

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.
