The Financial Aid Office is here to help during this stressful time! Effective as of 11/16/20, our office is closed to the public due to state guidance issued regarding COVID-19. Our staff will be working remotely Monday through Friday from 9:00-5:00 until further notice. If you need assistance, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also email your financial aid counselor directly; you can find your counselor's contact information via your Boxer Online account.
The Financial Aid COVID-19 page answers questions about changing financial circumstances, financial aid disbursement, interest and more.
Financial Aid & Scholarships
Our goals are to assist future and current students with all aspects of the financial aid process, and to help make a Pacific University education as affordable as possible by offering a variety of academic and competitive scholarships, need-based grants, employment opportunities and loans to eligible students.
All students interested in receiving federal financial aid need to fill out a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The 2021-2022 FAFSA is available now. Some applications are selected for verification, which means that we must verify the information on your FAFSA with supporting documents you provide. If your FAFSA is selected, we will send you the necessary forms and instructions. For a quick overview, check out FAFSA Verification Tips (pdf).
Use the Financial Aid Secure Document Upload to securely upload financial aid documents (e.g. IRS Tax Returns, W-2 Statements, Verification Worksheets, etc.) requested by the Pacific University Financial Aid Office, or to provide the financial aid office with additional information.
