Need-based aid in the form of grants, loans, work-study and other funding is available to those who demonstrate financial need. Not all students will receive all types of aid. For information and assistance, contact the Pacific University Office of Financial Aid.

Federal Work-Study

This need-based financial aid program allows eligible students to work on campus or in the community. Indicate your interest when filling out your FAFSA. The FAFSA must be processed by March 1 to be considered.

Federal Direct Loans

Two kinds of federal loans are available to master of science in athletic training students: Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans and Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loans. Students can borrow up to $20,500 in Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans each year. Interest on these loans will begin accruing at a fixed rate of 5.41 percent when the loans are disbursed. (Please note: Federal Direct Subsidized Loans for graduate students were discontinued as of June 30, 2012). Students can also apply for credit-based Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loans for up to the annual cost of attendance minus other financial aid received. These loans will begin accruing interest at a fixed rate of 6.41 percent upon disbursement.

Alternative Loans

These loans are offered by private lenders to credit-worthy applicants to help cover educational expenses. Lenders have varying credit approval criteria that applicants must meet. These loans may have variable or fixed interest rates. Interest will begin accruing upon disbursement. Students should consider federal loans before applying for alternative loans since federal loan repayment options may be superior.
