Applied Psychological Science Costs & Financial Aid

Total tuition and fees start at $29,686 for students in the Applied Psychological Science Master's Program in 2022-2023. 

The Pacific University Financial Aid Office establishes the Cost of Attendance, which reflects an estimate of what it will cost to attend Pacific for one year. The Cost of Attendance reflects direct costs, such as tuition and fees, as well as estimated indirect costs, such as books, transportation, and monthly living expenses. The Cost of Attendance is used to determine a student's eligibility for need-based financial aid resources.
