Welcome to the University of Evansville
Students at the University of Evansville shape powerful and enduring change. UE is the first university in Indiana to be designated as an Ashoka U Changemaker Campus, and its change-making culture empowers students to improve the world around them as #UEChangemakers. With over 80 majors and more than 100 areas of study in the arts and sciences and pre-professional programs, UE’s diverse student body represents 44 states and 55 countries. UE is recognized as the #6 “Best College in the Midwest” among private schools by U.S. News & World Report and is in the “Top 30 in the Nation for Financial Aid,” according to LendEDU.
Transfer and transform
UE’s transfer admission counselor personally guides each student through the transfer process. Each application is reviewed individually for admission and scholarship consideration.
Need-based financial aid eligibility is determined by the FAFSA (code: 001795). The transfer 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 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.
