Alma College has committed to helping Finlandia University students continue their education through the creation of a full tuition scholarship. The Alma-Finlandia Bridge Scholarship will cover full tuition and fees for eligible FinnU students and is renewable for up to three years or until the student graduates.
Eligible criteria for the Alma-Finlandia Bridge Scholarship include the following:
- Proof of enrollment at Finlandia University for the 2022-2023 academic year
- Admission to Alma College by May 5, 2023
- Paid enrollment deposit to Alma College by June 1, 2023
The full tuition scholarship requires students to live on campus and does not cover costs for room and board. Scholarships for students who choose not to live on campus will be adjusted accordingly. Institutional Alma aid and State of Michigan aid are used toward full tuition, whereas federal aid is applied toward room and board. Once Alma receives a 2023-2024 FAFSA, its financial aid team will generate an official award offer reflective of the student’s scholarships and remaining costs for Alma College.
Additionally, FinnU students who enroll at Alma College through the Alma-Finlandia Bridge Scholarship can earn $500 Munch Money when referring another Finlandia University student who chooses to enroll. Munch Money is accepted at all on-campus dining facilities and many off-campus locations.
At Alma, FinnU students will experience a tailored education. AC’s admissions counselors will work directly with students to help navigate the transfer process — from academic program planning to course registration. Alma’s 12:1 student-to-faculty ratio means students will find dedicated mentors among AC’s faculty. And, through the Transition Assistance Program, students will receive support from like-minded peers as they settle into their new homes.
