Tuition, Fees, & Financial Aid

Tuition & Fees 

Tuition and fees are structured differently depending upon whether you are an undergraduate or a graduate student, and depending upon what degree you are pursuing. See the Tuition and Fees by Program website for specific program costs.

The University strives to maintain high educational standards at the lowest reasonable cost. Support from alumni, parents, friends of the University, and foundations and corporations help to reduce costs to students and their families. Pacific University’s philosophy on payment reflects the educational element of assuming and meeting one’s fiduciary obligations carefully and completely. Timely payment of financial obligations is expected, and is the responsibility of the student. Payment due dates are established, and students should make the necessary arrangements for the payment of all fees and charges.

Students enrolling at Pacific University have a Business Office account opened in their names. Payments are due depending on which tuition payment plan has been agreed upon by the student and the University. Students receiving financial aid of any kind -including Pacific funds, loan funds, and/or outside scholarship funds - must be certain that all funds intended for their account have been properly credited to their account, including the endorsement of all checks to be credited to the student’s account. All payments must be made in United States funds. 

The Board of Trustees reserves the right to adjust costs after giving students due notice. The University reserves the right to modify or terminate the academic program in which the student is enrolled, and to prevent or cancel the registration of students who are delinquent in meeting their financial obligations to the University.

Financial Aid

The goal of the Office of Financial Aid is to help make a Pacific University education affordable. To accomplish this goal, Pacific offers a variety of merit-based scholarships, need-based grants, loans, and employment opportunities to eligible students. Funds come from institutional, federal, and state sources.

Students must be admitted to a degree or certificate program to receive financial aid. To qualify for federal student aid, students must be U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens and meet a variety of other eligibility criteria. Students must maintain full-time enrollment in the College to which they were originally admitted to be eligible for any institutional aid they are awarded.  Detailed financial aid application instructions and eligibility requirements are available at http://www.pacificu.edu/about-us/offices/financial-aid.

The Office of Financial Aid is located on the Forest Grove campus and processes financial aid for all Pacific campuses:  Forest Grove, Hillsboro, Eugene, Woodburn, and Portland.  Pacific’s federal school code for all campuses is 003212.
