Tuition Deposit

A non-refundable, non-transferable tuition deposit of $200 is required of all accepted students who intend to enroll. The tuition deposit should be paid as soon as possible after the notification of acceptance is received, as residence hall assignments are made, scholarship and grant offers are confirmed, and course schedules are completed only after the deposit is received. Make your deposit online by visiting finlandia.edu/deposit.

Residence Hall Charges

Students living on-campus during the 2023-2024 academic year are required to pay residence hall charges of $5,203 per semester ( $10,406 yearly). The residence hall charges cover a shared room and the resident board plan in the university dining hall (required of all students who live on-campus). The charge for a single room in the residence hall, if available, is an additional $1,000 per semester.

Students who move off-campus prior to the end of the published drop/add period will not incur any room and board charges but are responsible for a $500-$1,000 fee.

Students who move off-campus after the end of the published drop/add period are responsible for room and board charges for the full semester.

Net Price Calculator

This is a tool that is designed to give students and families an estimate of what types of government and institutional aid may be available to them. Please note that this is not an application for admission and it is not an application for financial aid. This is an estimate of what aid you may be eligible for and what charges you may encounter, both directly from the University and indirectly (travel, personal, and potential off-campus living charges).

Click here to enter our net price calculator. We encourage any student and their family that is going through the process to have the most accurate information possible to help make the experience as beneficial as possible. 

At Finlandia University, we strive to give individual, uncommon attention to each student and their family.  As a result, we would encourage you to contact our office with any questions or concerns after completing the calculator. We can speak with you regarding your FAFSA and look over your information on a more personal level.  While doing this, we may be able to work with you to find some additional funding sources to help make attending Finlandia a reality.

Michigan residents may find themselves eligible for grant programs from the State of Michigan that are not included in the Net Price Calculator’s estimates. These programs may include the Michigan Tuition Grant, which is a grant that students who file a FAFSA and attend a private college or university in Michigan may be eligible for.  Another program that Michigan residents may be eligible for is the Tuition Incentive Program (TIP).
