A beautiful and sustainable campus
Located in Evansville, Indiana, UE’s attractively landscaped campus covers 75 acres. Several of its facilities, including Ridgway University Center and student townhouses, have received silver certification as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) buildings. UE has earned several Excellence Awards, the top honor in the GreenOVATION Awards for beautiful and sustainable businesses.
A personalized transfer process
The transfer admission counselor personally guides each student through the transfer process. The transfer application is reviewed individually for admission and scholarship consideration. Every admitted transfer student is automatically awarded a UE merit scholarship, which currently range from $10,000–$15,000 per year based solely on academics. Phi Theta Kappa members earn a minimum $17,000-per-year scholarship. Need-based financial aid eligibility is determined by the FAFSA (UE’s code: 001795). The admission counselor will walk each student through their financial aid package, which includes all scholarships, grants, and loans available to the student.
Every college transcript is evaluated individually to determine how those credits can transfer toward the student’s UE degree program. Transfer students are encouraged to visit campus to meet one-on-one with their admission counselor, professors in their field of study, career advisors, and current students. This is the best way to see if UE is the right fit for you. Once a student has made the decision to attend UE, they will work with a faculty advisor in their major to register for classes and build a graduation plan.
