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. The FAFSA for the 2024-25 school year will be opening sometime in December 2023. We will post updates and more information when it becomes available.
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.
