Net Price Calculator

By clicking the link below, you will be directed to Finlandia University's Net Price Calculator, hosted by College Board.  This is a tool that is designed to give students and families an estimate of what types of government and institutional aid may be available to them.  Please note that this is not an application for admission and it is not an application for financial aid.  This is an estimate of what aid you may be eligible for and what charges you may encounter, both directly from the University and indirectly (travel, personal, and potential off-campus living charges).

We encourage any student and their family that is going through the process to have the most accurate information possible to help make the experience as beneficial as possible.

At Finlandia University, we strive to give individual, uncommon attention to each student and their family.  As a result, we would encourage you to contact our office with any questions or concerns after completing the Net Price Calculator.  We can speak with you regarding your FAFSA and look over your information on a more personal level.  While doing this, we may be able to work with you to find some additional funding sources to help make attending Finlandia a reality.

Michigan residents may find themselves eligible for grant programs from the State of Michigan that are not included in the Net Price Calculator's estimates.  These programs may include the Michigan Tuition Grant, which is a grant that students who file a FAFSA and attend a private college or university in Michigan may be eligible for.  Another program that Michigan residents may be eligible for is the Tuition Incentive Program (TIP).  For more information regarding programs from the State of Michigan, you may click here or contact the Office of Scholarships and Grants at 1-888-4-GRANTS.
