Visit the Forest Grove Campus | Undergraduate Admissions

Thank you so much for your interest in visitng Pacific University Oregon! Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we've made the difficult decision to cancel face to face visits through April 28. 

We understand that visiting campus is an important component to your college search. Our team has been making real-time, difficult decisions that we know have wide-spread effects on our lives, and we are keeping the well-being of all of our students, families, faculty, and staff at the forefront. In the meantime, our Admissions Counselors are still available by phone or Zoom (free online video meetings) to chat and answer any of your questions or concerns.    
Please note that during the summer, we will be hosting Oregon Private College Week in July, in which you will have the opportunity to tour the campus and sit in on an informational session. We will also be hosting Senior Preview Scholarship Days in the Fall when you become a Senior in High School. There will be a faculty panel and student panel involved, a campus tour, and a possible meeting with the athletic coaches if you are interested in playing sports at Pacific. Just for attending this event, you will receive an annually renewable tuition scholarship for $1,000 (total of $4,000 over the course 4 years). You will receive emails to register for this event towards the ending of the summer. 
Please reach out if you need any help or support! We want to help you determine if Pacific University is a good fit for you!
