Financial Aid

Need-based aid in the form of grants, loans, work-study and other funding is available to those who demonstrate financial need. Visit financial aid and select the link for Graduate & Professional Students.

The following sources of financial aid are available to full-time dental health science students, though not all students will receive all types.

Federal Work-Study

These funds allow eligible students to work on campus or in the community. Indicate your interest when filling out the FAFSA application.

Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFELP)
Starting this Fall, Pacific University will participate in the Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFELP). This program offers incoming Dental Health Science 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. The interest rate will be fixed at 6.8%.
