Student Financial Support | COVID-19


Pacific University received $1,161,736 in CARES Act funding for students. In accordance with CARES Act guidelines, the university will distribute these funds as broadly as possible to reach as many students as possible. Funds will be distributed to Pacific students (graduate and undergraduate) who filed a FAFSA for the 2019-2020 academic year, who were enrolled in a face-to-face program at Pacific on March 13, 2020, and who have demonstrated financial need (as determined by the FAFSA). CARES Act funds are not available to international students, students with DACA status, or those without documentation of citizenship. Students’ funds will be sent to them via check from the Business Office in May-June 2020.
