Finlandia hosting open house for transfer students and nurses

December 15, 2017

Event to focus on online nursing program and new transfer pricing

Finlandia’s effort to become the most transfer friendly college will be highlighted on Tuesday, December 19 with a Transfer Open House from 4 to 8 p.m. in the lobby of the Jutila Center. On hand that night will be Transfer Coordinator Craig Kangas and RN-BSN Program Director Mark Miron.

“We’re proud of the work we’ve done to improve our university from a transfer student perspective, and on Tuesday night we’re looking forward to showcasing that,” said Kangas.

Those changes include a new pricing model that puts Finlandia’s private college experience at a lower price point than many state schools, an easier admissions process, including a fast-tracked application process, and an increase in staffing in the registrar’s office that will make it easier for a transfer student to come in and create a plan that will have them graduating as soon as possible.

Kangas will be on hand from 4 to 6 p.m. to answer general transfer questions, and Miron will come in from 6 to 8 p.m. to showcase the university’s online RN-BSN program. All working nurses interested in advancing their career are invited to learn more about the university’s online RN-BSN program, the first program of its kind offered in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

“Having a bachelor’s degree in nursing is becoming the industry standard,” Miron said. “We’re proud to offer our program to the skilled and passionate nurses of the U.P.”

Miron will be able to answer questions about financial aid opportunities, credit for experience, Finlandia’s unique $15,000 price guarantee, deferring tuition payments until employee reimbursement has arrived, unique employee reimbursement programs offered by local employers such as Aspirus and the university’s state-of-the-art online learning platform.

This event is free for anyone interested in learning more about advancing their career in nursing. Light refreshments will be served. Attendees are not required to RSVP.
