Financial Aid for Undergraduate Students

Pacific strives to achieve excellence and distinction by investing in exceptional people.

Nearly 99 percent of undergraduate students are awarded financial aid. Financial aid opportunities at Pacific include a variety of academic and competitive scholarships, need-based grants, loans, and employment.

Good grades pay off at Pacific University. Academic scholarships are available for freshmen and transfer students upon admission to Pacific University. Your grades and test scores can lead to significant rewards!

Once enrolled at Pacific, students have the opportunity to apply for institutional scholarships for their sophomore, junior, and senior years. Departmental scholarships may also be available, based on faculty nomination.

About 80 percent of undergraduate students receive need-based financial aid through institutional, federal and state financial aid programs. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is used to determine eligibility for all need-based financial aid. 

The 2024-25 FAFSA is available now! To be considered for Federal Work Study and the FSEOG Grant for the 2024-25 academic year, continuing students must file the FAFSA by April 1st, 2024.
