Student Aid Information

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.

The financial aid office is open from 9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday, with the exception of Wednesday. We open at 11am on Wednesday due to our weekly staff meeting. 

Apply for Aid: All students interested in receiving federal financial aid need to fill out a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The 2023-24 FAFSA is available now. 

Oregon residents who are ineligibile to file a FAFSA can complete the Oregon Student Aid Application to be considered for state and institutional aid at Pacific University.

Access your Financial Aid: Individualized financial aid information is available through BoxerOnline Financial Aid Self Service.

If you are having difficulties accessing your student account for the first time, use this link for assistance.

Find Emergency Aid:  The Student Support Funds, established by the Professional Student Senate (PSS) and the Undergraduate Student Senate (USS), assist students during a time of crisis when a clear financial need exists.
