University Freshman Academic Scholarship
Fall freshmen may be eligible for a University Freshman Academic Scholarship ranging from $1,000 - $9,500. In addition, non-Ohio residents may qualify for the BG Success Scholarship valued at $4,000. Sudents must apply to BGSU and submit all admission credentials by the posted deadlines for automatic consideration; no separate scholarship application is necessary. View our Scholarships & Financial Aid page for deadlines and additional scholarship opportunities.

On this site, students will find a full offering of our on-campus visits and events. This includes our daily visits to campus along with academic specific larger visit days. This is a great place for students to start!
While reasearch has shown in-person visits are one of the best ways to determine if a college is a good fit for a student, we realize that virtual opportunites can better fit into busy schedules. This site offers a full calendar of offerings including admissions, scholarships, financial aid and academic presentations.
Students who are new to BGSU or just starting their college search should start with the Go BG! Admissions Information Session. This is the first step to learning more about BGSU.
Every student interested in BGSU has a team of representatives ready to help. Their Admissions Counselor is ready to provide information about applying, financial aid, housing and next steps. Looking for more information about a major or program? Students can connect with the representative from the major(s) they’re interested in – they’re part of the BGSU College Search Team, too, and are offering virtual one-on-one appointments, information sessions, tours and more.
