I couldn’t have chosen a better place. Ferris is the best school for me. It is such an amazing place to be at and such an amazing place to get involved in. People are so passionate about what they do here at Ferris.

I love the community here at Ferris, and I like how friendly and relatable all the students are… Ferris, to me, is an opportunity to better myself and be a better version of myself.

What I like most about the major is how hands-on it is. Right away, you get into learning about the camera, working with the camera, going to Media Supply. Another thing I like about it is it’s small enough that pretty much everybody in the major knows each other.

This is a foundation that moves you.

Tour image

A lot has changed since we first opened our doors more than a century ago. We've expanded our curriculum, evolved coursework to meet industry demands, renovated old libraries, built new laboratories, and created infinite opportunities for students to move forward at the speed of life.

Change is inevitable, but one thing remains constant: we're here to prepare you for it.

We’re here to help with your next step, and every step after that.

Ferris was founded with a mission to empower students by providing opportunity. Our admission process doesn’t require essays, personal statements or interviews. It all starts with a free online application, and no enrollment deposit is required.

We know standardized testing doesn’t always tell the full story about a student’s abilities, so we also offer a test-optional admission path. If you happen to be great at standardized testing, don’t worry—your test scores will be considered in your admission process.

If you need help at any point along the way, our team is ready and waiting to support you at [email protected] or on our LiveChat platform.

Financial Aid

The financial aid process is complicated, and it can be hard to tell where to start. Helping students control expenses and manage debt is a priority at Ferris. Our financial aid advisors provide educational tools to guide you through the financial aid process, including cost of attendance, deadlines, Free Application for Federal Student Aid, scholarships and more.

Ferris provides multiple forms of financial aid for Students. Our goal is to provide students the financial resources needed to attend Ferris. We provide access to Scholarships, Grants, Loans, and other resources to reach that goal.

Ferris offers a combination of need- and performance-based scholarships, and costs vary for each student’s situation. Use our Net Price Calculator to help you estimate your costs and financial aid support at Ferris State. Use our Net Price Calculator.
