Financial Aid

Our goals are to assist prospective and current students with all aspects of the financial aid process, and to help make a Pacific University education as affordable as possible by offering a variety of academic and competitive scholarships, need-based grants, employment opportunities and loans to eligible students.

We hope that you find the information here to be useful. If you have questions or need additional information, please visit our office on the first floor of Marsh Hall in Forest Grove from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. or contact us at or at 503-352-2222. Our fax number is 503-352-2940.



All students interested in receiving federal financial aid need to fill out a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The 2017-2018 FAFSA is available now! Some FAFSA's are selected for verification, which means that we must verify the information on your FAFSA with supporting documents you provide.  If your FAFSA is selected, we will send you the necessary forms and instructions.  For a quick overview, check out FAFSA Verification Tips (pdf).

More information about the FAFSA and federal aid is available at For tips on completing your FAFSA, watch How to Fill Out the FAFSA.
