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 alumnus.

The average net price for undergraduate students is approximately $20,000. When you compare that to the $24,000 average net price of other private universities in Ohio and a $16,500 average net price of the state schools in Ohio, the value of a Findlay education is clear.
