WE DON’T RECRUIT FRESHMEN. WE RECRUIT COLLEGE GRADUATES. ​


The University of Findlay’s college investment plan is a partnership between the University and you and your family. Our goal is to guide you to graduation with the least amount of debt possible. Your part of the partnership is to work hard to build the knowledge base you need to become a successful alumni.


Take the first steps to find out what your individualized college investment plan at Findlay includes.

  • Step 1: Send your transcripts to Findlay. Your transcripts will help us work with Financial Aid to build an award package that recognizes your outstanding achievements, both in and outside of the classroom.
  • Step 2: Complete Findlay’s Total Degree Cost Calculator​. In about five minutes, you will have an accurate dollar amount of what your out-of-pocket cost could be each year at Findlay.
  • Step 3: Complete the FAFSA your senior year and list Findlay as a university you are considering attending. Listing UF in the FAFSA will ensure that the Financial Aid Office automatically receives a copy of your federal aid application. This information will be used to enhance your pre-awarded college investment plan.​


​The average net price to attend Findlay is $21,500, compared to an average net price of $19,600 for the state schools and $23,200 for other private schools in the region.


UF donors play an important part in affordability. Since 2006, our dedicated alumni and friends of UF have raised more than $7.5 million in endowed scholarships. Bottom line: 99% of students at UF receive financial aid.
