I chose to attend Mount Union because of the small class sizes and the one-on-one attention students receive from professors. At the University, you aren’t just a number. Professors really care about you and your progress in and outside of the classroom. They also are really approachable and personable.
Financial Aid Process for International Degree Seeking Students
The University of Mount Union does offer need-based financial aid and academic merit awards to qualifying students.
International Award The International Award is given automatically to non-native English speaking applicants who qualify based on a review of a student’s English language proficiency level at the time of acceptance. To qualify for the International Award, applicants must be admitted as an F-1 degree seeking student and hold a valid I-20 form which will be issued by Mount Union. The award amounts are the following:
45-60 iBT (PB TOEFL scores between 450 and 497) or an IELTS score of 4.5 - $7,500 award
61 iBT (PB TOEFL scores at 500 and above) or an IELTS score of 5.0 and above - $10,000 award
Merit-based Awards (Scholarships) Upon admission, a number of academic merit awards are given automatically to those who qualify based on a review of student's academic credentials such as curriculum, grade point average, ACT/SAT and high school rank. The awards are renewable each year (maximum of eight semesters) as long as the student is full-time (minimum of 12 hours).
Merit Based Scholarship consideration begins with at least:
3.0 average on a 4.0 grade point scale
970 minimum SAT in the combined areas of Critical Reading and Math
20 minimum ACT
Top 30% or higher class rank
You may be eligible to compete for a higher scholarship if you meet any of the following criteria:
1220 SAT or higher in the combined areas of Critical Reading and Math
Need-based aid is calculated from the information submitted on this form, which primarily looks at the income and assets of the student and his/her parents.
The average need based financial aid award for international students who applied for financial aid and were determined to have financial need is $17,447. This financial aid award generally includes the International Grant and Campus Employment. The financial aid award will also include a scholarship if the student qualifies for an academic merit-based scholarship. Our scholarships range from $7,500 to full tuition based on the student’s academic credentials.
