The process of applying for financial aid begins with applying for admission. Admitted students’ academic information is used to award merit-based institutional scholarships. We then review the information that applicants provide on their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine their eligibility for federal, state, and institutional need-based and cost-based aid. The best way to submit the FAFSA is online at Pacific’s Federal School Code, which works for all of its campuses, is 003212. Pacific does not require any supplemental financial aid application forms.
