​F​irst-Time Freshmen​​

A first-time freshman is a student who has earned no transferable college credit after the summer immediately following high school graduation.  If that's you, you're in the right place.

The University of Findlay has a rolling admissions process, which means you can apply at any point in the year, but some programs have their own admissions deadlines. Because of this, it is best to apply as early in your senior year as possible. Applying to UF is free and you can apply online by clicking here.​ ​​

When to Apply

The University of Findlay accepts applications on a rolling basis, which means applications are reviewed based on when they are received. Because of this, it is a good idea to get your application in as much advance as possible before the start of the semester.               

You will receive notification of the admission decision from the time all required materials have been received by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.​


Entrance into The University of Findlay requires an earned diploma from an accredited high school in a college preparatory course of study or a GED certificate. The faculty recommends four units of English, three units of mathematics, three units of social studies (including one in history), two units of science, and two units of foreign language. ​

The following criteria are used as standards for freshman admission: 

  • High school grades and class rank;

  • ACT or SAT scores;

  •  Academic Letter of Recommendation; 

  • ​​Other indicators of academic and personal success (character, study habits, personality, etc.)

Certain programs (e.g., environmental, safety, and occupational health management, animal science/pre-veterinary medicine option, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and pharmacy) may require additional criteria.
