To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, the BGSU Firelands Office of Admissions is not offering daily on-campus visits, events or appointments. While we're not available in person, we're still available for connections and conversations. You can schedule a phone appointment by contacting us at 419-372-0607 or fireadm@bgsu.edu.

Please know that BGSU Firelands is excited and ready to connect with you as you navigate your college options. And of course, we hope you’ll consider visiting us at a time that’s convenient for you in the future. We’re here for you!


Nestled on the south shore of Lake Erie in Huron, BGSU Firelands provides a university education at a smaller campus. Faculty members know students by name, staff work closely with parents and students to ensure academic success, and our campus is closely connected with our community.
