Students choose Farmington for many reasons. For some, it’s a special academic program we offer that other colleges do not, or a UMF program that aligns perfectly with their future goals.

For others it’s all about affordability, choosing a nationally ranked college at an affordable price.

For some it’s the fact that here you can learn by doing — with internships, student-teaching, undergrad research projects often found only at the grad school level.

And for others it’s about finding that perfect fit, our strong sense of community that instantly made them feel welcomed, accepted and comfortable.

Most students choose Farmington for a combination of all of those reasons.
