Schedule a campus visit

Schedule a visit to campus if you haven’t visited already – or schedule another visit to campus if you’re still deciding if Ursuline is the right place for you. Sign up online.

File your FAFSA

Ensure you are considered for all the aid you are eligible to receive by completing your Federal Application for Free Student Aid (FAFSA). If you are new to the financial aid process, you may want to reference our glossary of terms. 

Where to Find the FAFSA

The FAFSA is available online. You can complete, submit, and track your application online. October 1st is the first day you can submit your FAFSA for the following fall term. We recommend you file and add Ursuline to your FAFSA as far in advance of your first term as possible.

Before You Apply

If possible, before you apply, both you and your parent(s)/guardian(s) (if you are still a dependent student) should file your income tax returns. If you complete your FAFSA before the tax returns are ready, use last year’s tax forms to complete your FAFSA. You can return to the FAFSA once this year’s taxes are filed and update it.


Create a FAFSA ID and password
. If you are filing as a dependent student, both you and a parent/guardian need to create your own IDs and passwords with your own individual email accounts.
Collect documents. See the list of documents you need to get started.

Tips

What Happens After You Apply

  • You will receive the Student Aid Report (SAR) from the US Department of Education. Be sure to review this document for errors and follow directions to correct them.
  • Wait for your Ursuline College Award letter to arrive in the mail. Once it arrives be sure to review it and contact your Admission Counselor with any questions.
  • After you review your award letter, sign the letter to accept the award and return it to Ursuline College
  • You may be selected for verification if any data elements reported on your FAFSA are flagged by a federal processor or Ursuline Financial Aid team member as potentially inconsistent or inaccurate. If selected, verification forms and instructions will be included in your financial aid award package, and our team will work with you to ensure you understand what do next. Please know that if an error in data entry is identified during your verification process, your financial aid package could change.

Review and accept your financial aid

Instructions and aid acceptance forms will be included with your Financial Aid Award. Complete these forms to identify what parts of your award letter you are accepting or declining (you do not have to accept all the aid that is offered to you) and return these forms to:

Student Service Center
Ursuline College

Pepper Pike, OH 44124

Select your financing

Payment Plan
The Ursuline College Business Office provides a service that lets you pay all or part of your education expenses spread out over five monthly payments per semester. There is no interest charge, but there is a $25 enrollment fee. The payment plan can be used in conjunction with other sources of financial aid. Payment Plan Enrollment forms can be obtained in the Student Service Center or can be found here:

Fall Payment Plan
Spring Payment Plan

Another common option for covering your out-of-pocket expenses to attend Ursuline is to apply for a Parent Plus Loan. If this is an option that interests you, contact your Financial Aid Counselor.

Employer Reimbursement Program
Students whose employers will reimburse part or all of their tuition may choose to apply for a deferment of tuition and fees each semester. There is a $25 deferment fee per semester to enroll and applications are available in the Student Service Center (Mullen 203). The amount that your employer will reimburse you can then be deferred until 30 days after your last class ends – this should allow enough time to submit for payment to your employer and receive your reimbursement funds. If your payment to the college is not submitted within the 30 days, your credit card will be charged the deferred amount (you must supply your credit card information on the application).

Reply to our offer of admission and pay your deposit

Reply to our offer of admission and submit your deposit.

These two steps, together, let us know your plans and hold your place in the class. Deposit amounts are $100 for commuters, $200 for resident students and $250 for Second Degree Accelerated Nursing students. Submit your deposit as far in advance of your attended start term as possible. We recommend May 1 for fall admission, November 15 for spring admission and at the time of admission for Second Degree Accelerated Nursing students as cohorts fill quickly.

Secure your housing

Housing is available to transfer students in suite-style Smith hall (sophomore level+ only) as well as Murphy and Grace halls. If you indicated your intention to live on campus on your application for admission, your financial aid package will include considerations for housing costs. Resident students must pay a $200 deposit ($100 toward tuition and $100 toward housing costs) and after submitting your deposit, you will be mailed a housing contract and roommate questionnaire.

If you did not indicate an interest in campus housing but have changed your mind, please contact your Admission Counselor.

For guaranteed housing, submit your deposit by May 1 for fall semester. After May 1, or if you transfer to Ursuline for the spring or summer term, your request for housing will be accommodated on a space-available basis. Please note that Ursuline does not have family housing and eligibility requirements to live on campus apply.

Any further questions about living on campus can be directed to your Transfer Counselor or to Gina DeMart-Kraus, Director of Residence Life, gdemart@ursuline.edu or 440 646 8334.

Send your final or official transcripts

If you had coursework in progress at the time you applied for admission, you will need to send Ursuline your final official transcripts at the conclusion of your most recent term. If you were admitted provisionally on unofficial transcripts, you will need to make arrangements to have official versions of your transcripts submitted to Ursuline.

Your transfer credit will not be posted to your Ursuline student record until all final and official transcripts are received.

Please note that if you were admitted provisionally, you are able to register for your first semester only until official documents are received and processed. A provisional hold will be placed on your account at the time of admission and removed once your official transcripts are processed. Once the provisional hold is removed your admission to Ursuline will be considered clear or conditional and you will be able to register for subsequent semesters. Please see your offer of admission for additional details.

Take placement testing (if applicable)

If you were informed in your admission letter that you need to take placement testing, please contact Jill Carroll in the URSA Office at 440 449 2049 to make an appointment. You must complete placement testing before you can attend orientation.

If you do not remember if you were required to take placement tests, you can visit your Student Portal to view your admission letter electronically.

Sign up for Orientation

Academic Orientation, TRANSFERmation, is required for all incoming transfer students. At TRANSFERmation, you will meet with your Academic Advisor, schedule your fall classes, get your Ursuline student ID, and more. The last available, half-day TRANSFERmation program for Fall 2017 is August 9, 2017.

Sign up for the morning session

If you are not available to attend orientation on this date, you must contact the URSA office at 440 449 2049 to schedule an individual appointment.
