Start Your Pursuit

Visit Campus

If you have not already visited, schedule an in-person visit or take a virtual tour on our website. We are excited to show you around!

Learn About Merit Scholarships

Once admitted, your merit scholarship notification will be sent to you by mail and uploaded to your student application portal. Those admitted before Dec. 1 will receive scholarship notification before Dec. 31. Students admitted after Dec. 1 will receive notifications on a rolling basis. We also encourage you to apply for additional outside scholarships.

Pay Your Enrollment Deposit

Pay your $200 Enrollment Deposit early to secure your spot and gain access to housing and registration forms. Once your deposit is received, we will send you information on setting up your Franklin College email account and logging into the New Student Checklist, which takes you through the process to officially become a Grizzly.

File the FAFSA

Filing the FAFSA allows you to be considered for state and federal financial aid. You may start as early as Oct. 1. Indiana Residents must complete the FAFSA by April 15. The Franklin College institutional code is 001798.

Filing the FAFSA early benefits you. The college begins preparing financial aid offers in December for admitted students who have included us on their FAFSA. In mid-December, we email students their offer, which includes your federal financial aid along with your academic merit scholarship. Once you receive your offer, your admissions counselor will discuss all of your options with you.

Attend a New Student Registration Day

At New Student Registration Day, which is required for all new students, you will meet your classmates, receive your class schedule and learn what life is like as a Grizzly! Attending an early registration date will give you the most flexibility in building a class schedule. Upon paying your deposit, you will receive a packet of information about your next steps and choosing a New Student Registration Day.


Get Ready to Launch

A fulfilling college experience begins with self-discovery. That’s why we created Launch, a distinctive first-year learning program tailored to your individual interests and goals.
