University of Findlay is committed to making a top-ranked, private education affordable and accessible. Last year, over $51 million in scholarships and financial aid was awarded to 98 percent of our full-time students. Both merit-based and need-based assistance is available as part of UF’s scholarship program.​

The average net price for undergraduate students is approximately $23,589, and the University works closely with students and their families to assure that we are the "right fit" on all levels.

The Classic Learning Test (CLT) is a standardized college entrance exam designed to assess students' skills in areas such as reading, writing, and math, with a particular focus on critical thinking.​
