The Alumni Advantage
Ursinus maintains a rich, prestigious tradition of valuing its family of alumni. Legacy candidates—that is, those applicants whose grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles or siblings attended Ursinus—are very important to the future excellence of the college. The Ursinus Admissions Office welcomes legacy applicants, aspiring to enroll even greater numbers into the Ursinus community.
What is the “Alumni Advantage”?
Ursinus Admissions respects its alumni heritage and is committed to reaching out to legacy candidates, our future alumni, in the following ways:
• A $2,500 Legacy Scholarship
• Early Decision admission preference
• Personal counseling from Ursinus Admissions
The Ursinus enrollment team is staffed by experts in admissions and financial aid. We want to make ourselves available to our alumni group and their legacy prospects for admission to Ursinus by providing the most effective counseling and communicating the most recent developments in this increasingly complex process. Is Ursinus right for you? How do I get started on tours and interviews? Do I need to select a major when applying? How far is too far? What does “selective” really mean? Throughout the year Ursinus Admissions will sponsor information events specially tailored to answer these question for our legacy applicants.
In addition, all admitted legacy applicants will receive a $2,500 Legacy Scholarship to attend Ursinus, renewable all four years. The Office of Student Financial Services is available to share their expertise on all forms of federal, state and Ursinus scholarship, grant, loan and work study.
