Need-based aid in the form of grants, loans, work-study and other funding is available to those who demonstrate financial need. Not all students will receive all types of aid. For information and assistance, contact the Pacific University Office of Financial Aid.
Federal Work-Study | This need-based financial aid program allows eligible students to work on campus or in the community. Indicate your interest when filling out your FAFSA.
Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFELP) | Pacific University participates in the Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFELP). This program offers incoming master of science in athletic training students subsidized and unsubsidized loans. Students who demonstrate need are eligible to borrow subsidized Federal Direct Stafford Loans. Students who do not show need or who have remaining unmet need are eligible to borrow unsubsidized Federal Direct Stafford Loans. Subsidized loans do not accrue interest while students are enrolled and for a six-month grace period afterward. Unsubsidized loans begin accruing interest when they are disbursed. Students in the MSAT program can borrow up to $20,500 per academic year. The interest rate will be fixed at 6.8%.
Federal Direct Loans | Two kinds of federal loans are available to master of science in athletic training students: Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans and Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loans. Students can borrow up to $20,500 in Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans each year. Interest on these loans will begin accruing at a fixed rate of 6.8% when the loans are disbursed. (Please note: Federal Direct Subsidized Loans for graduate students were discontinued as of June 30, 2012). Students can also apply for credit-based Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loans for up to the annual cost of attendance minus other financial aid received. These loans will begin accruing interest at a fixed rate of 7.9% upon disbursement.
Alternative Loans | These loans are offered by private lenders to credit-worthy applicants to help cover educational expenses. Lenders have varying credit approval criteria that applicants must meet. These loans may have variable or fixed interest rates. Interest will begin accruing upon disbursement. Students should consider federal loans before applying for alternative loans since federal loan repayment options may be superior.
