Is Providence a Good Fit for Your Student?

Is your student looking for…

  • a Christian university offering a wide variety of majors such as Aviation, Health Sciences, Business and Psychology?
  • a university experience with smaller classroom sizes and professors who know you by name?
  • a safe, rural environment on a 100-acres campus where students can focus on their studies and actively participate in recreational clubs and activities?
  • a place to make new connections, establishing a network of life-long friends and professors as mentors?
  • an opportunity to explore how faith and learning apply in real-world places of work?
  • an education that helps students connect “calling” to career and become difference-makers in their field of choice?

If your student answered “yes” to at least half of the questions, we would love to get in touch with you and your student and walk with you through the application and admission process.

Information Sessions

We are planning a number of information sessions about Providence, as well as short, timely sessions on topics such as How to Handle Stress in New Environments, Faith Formation During One’s University Journey, Financial Aid: How to Pay for University?, etc. A full list of topics and dates are posted HERE.

 

Let’s face it. Choosing the right university fit for you can be an overwhelming task. There are lots of choices and options out there. We’ve compiled a list of the top 10 questions students ask to help determine if Providence is the place for them.

We are finalizing plans to have you and/or your student visit our campus safely. Right now, due to COVID-19, we are planning virtual events on prescheduled dates so that your student can experience Providence up close. Watch for details.

It’s been a lot of research and info gathering, looking at viewbooks and finding a program of choice, but your student is ready to apply to Providence. What’s next? Click here and look for the application checklist for step by step instructions.
