Admissions Events


The Office of Undergraduate Admissions offers a variety of events through out the year.  Each event is special and custom built to provide the best experience for our prospective students and families.  Several of our signature events are opportunities that families find helpful when navigating the college search process.   

Virtual Senior Preview Scholarship Days

Seniors in high school may attend one of these events. Attendees will earn an annual $1,000 tuition scholarship at Pacific University Oregon (total of $4,000 over 4 years). Students must apply and be admitted in order to receive the scholarship.  This is open for high school seniors who are applying to Pacific as a first year student. 

Pacific's Senior Preview Scholarship Days provide high school seniors and their guests an opportunity to interact with the Pacific University campus and community, all from the comfort of your home! This year, we are offering this signature event through a two-part, online virtual experience.  Throughout the day you will hear from an Admissions Counselor, meet with outstanding faculty, interact with current students and see a video tour our beautiful campus.  

PacU Pop-Ups: College Application & Study Hall Edition

These zoom sessions are designed for current high school seniors.  During these study hall sessions, an admissions counselor will be available to help answer questions about the many different topics such as:

  • CommonApp: How to fill it out and get a fee waiver college essay
  • College Essay: How to start it and what to write
  • Applications: Are there any missing documents?  What else do I need to submit?
  • Timelines:  Am I on track?

...and any other college application process you may have questions on.  The PacU Pop-Up: Study Hall Edition will be running until mid-November, just before Thanksgiving break.
