How to Apply for Financial Aid at Pacific University
Apply for admission to Pacific University. When you apply for admission
you are automatically considered for a renewable merit scholarship
of $6500 to $9000. These scholarships are awarded solely for academic
achievement and are not based on financial need.
Complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid
(FAFSA) or Renewal FAFSA as soon as possible after January 1, 2004.
While paper FAFSAs are available at high schools and colleges; you
may wish to apply on-line to increase accuracy and speed up processing
time. Both the FAFSA and Renewal FAFSA can be completed on-line
Renewal applicants will need to obtain a Personal Identification
Number (PIN) before accessing their information. You may request
a PIN on-line at www.pin.ed.gov. Pacific's Federal School Code, which you will
need to send your FAFSA information to Pacific, is 003212.
Respond as quickly as possible to any requests for information that the Financial
Aid Office sends to you. Such information may include photocopies
of federal income tax returns, bank statements, and copies of birth
certificates, for example.
After you have been admitted and the Financial Aid Office has received and reviewed
all needed information, we will send you a financial aid award notification
that lists all of the types and amounts of financial aid for which
you are eligible.
In addition to applying for financial aid, be sure to research scholarship opportunities.
You can begin your search on-line at www.finaid.org. High
schools, colleges, employers, churches, and civic organizations are
also potential sources of scholarship information.
