VINCENNES, Ind. - Vincennes University is waiving application fees
for anyone who applies in 2020.
“We recognize many families have been impacted financially by
COVID-19, and waiving the fee will eliminate obstacles. We want to
make sure that nothing comes between a student and their dreams and
goals,” according to VU President Dr. Chuck Johnson.
According to leading experts at Georgetown University, 70 percent of
jobs by 2027 will require education beyond high school.
VU’s mission is to provide an affordable and accessible high-quality
education to all. Its tuition and fees are the lowest among Indiana
campuses with residence halls. The University is dedicated to creating
and supporting a diverse and inclusive community of students from all
Continuing with this commitment, the University is waiving the
application fee. This should help accelerate the admissions process
and enhance the enrollment experience.
"Vincennes University puts students first. We know our students’
names, where they are from, and what their goals are. Our classrooms
are small, which makes VU feel very much like a family. COVID-19 has
impacted everyone and when our students are hurting, we feel that. VU
is always looking for ways to make education accessible and affordable
and I believe that waiving that application fee is just one small
example of putting students first,” VU Provost and Vice President of
Instructional Services/Dean of Faculty Dr. Laura Treanor.
With more than 180 academic programs, multiple campuses, and a
Distance Education program, VU is a great place to find your future
and begin your journey.
VU encourages students who apply in 2020 to take advantage of the
abundance of scholarships VU offers. VU is committed to removing
barriers and providing opportunities.
The Vincennes University Foundation and VU have more than 1,000
scholarships, worth over $2 million available each year. Students have
access to almost all of the scholarships VU offers by filling out just
one application. Scholarship recipients are from Indiana, all over the
United States, and the world.
"The Foundation team works daily with students to lessen
financial challenges and support their educational success through
scholarships. The generosity of our donors has created a wide variety
of scholarship awards ranging from financial need to academic
standing, from geographic region to a selected major,” says Kristi
Deetz, Executive Director of the VU Foundation. "By simply
completing the scholarship section of the online admission application
before the end of the year, students meet the deadline for priority
consideration and have more opportunities for awards.”
