Advisors are available for scheduled appointments with currently enrolled Forest Grove undergraduate Pacific University students. If you are a current continuing Pacific University student looking for academic advising help, please make an appointment with us through Calendly. If you have questions about Federal Work Study (FWS) please see this page for Work Study information

Future Students - Email, Phone, and Zoom Advising Available

If you are a future Forest Grove undergraduate student and would like to schedule an appointment, please let us know what school you are currently attending and email us the most up to date copy of your unofficial transcripts. 

If you are seeking information on Pacific's Master's/Doctoral or other Professional Health or Graduate programs, please contact Graduate Admissions

Prospective and Future Students are welcome to email to set up an appointment. Please DO NOT schedule via the Calendly link as we desire to get you paired with the right advisor. When emailing us, please include:

  • The most up to date copy of your unofficial transcripts.

  • Your prior education (undergraduate major, degree, other previous education as applicable)
  • At least 2-3 days and times that you're available to meet
  • Information on the types of employment you are seeking
