Applying for Spring Semester

Why Now is the Best Time

With temperatures dropping every day, spring sure seems like it’s a long way off. But the Spring 2019 semester kicks off in just a few months! That means right now is the best time to apply to Ferris. Here’s why there’s no better time to start thinking spring:

Get Ahead of the Game

If you apply now, there will be no last-minute rush to request your transcripts, locate your ACT/SAT scores or find time to meet with your advisor before the semester starts. Plus, applying to Ferris is free, convenient and completely online! Visit our apply page to get started. 

Advisors are available

This is one of the easiest times to set an appointment with your program advisor. Most advisors have appointments available until the end of fall semester. Make an appointment by visiting our advisor information page.  

Spring Registration is now open

Spring registration is officially open and classes are filling up fast! Apply now and you could be accepted to the university with plenty of time to grab a seat in the classes you want!

square away financial aid

If you apply now, you’ll be able to submit your FAFSA for the 18/19 school year with time to prepare for the first spring tuition deadline on December 13. While you can submit your 18/19 FAFSA through the end of the school year, our Financial Aid gurus recommend that you fill it out sooner rather than later. Some federal aid is awarded on a first come, first served basis.

Ready to apply? Join us at our Grand Rapids Open House on Nov. 8 and you could be accepted to Ferris on the spot! Just make sure to RSVP and bring your transcripts and test scores with you.
