Welcome to the Pacific University Net Price Calculator! We're happy that you're beginning to explore how to plan and pay for your further education. Using the net price calculator, you can get an idea about your eligibility for financial aid and estimate your out-of-pocket expenses. In 2013-2014, 97% of our first-time, full-time undergraduate students received scholarships, grants, or both. You may find that attending Pacific University could be more affordable than you had imagined.
As you use the calculator, keep a couple of things in mind. The net price estimate you'll receive will be based on the financial aid that we awarded to first-time freshmen in 2013-2014. If you're planning to apply for admission for the fall of 2014, be sure to check with the Admissions or Financial Aid offices to see how 2014-2015 changes may affect your possible net price and out-of-pocket expenses. Also, if your family has had special circumstances such as a job loss or large, unreimbursed medical expenses, let us know. We may be able to consider those circumstances when we determine your actual financial aid eligibility.
Even if you're not going to college in the near future, the net price calculator will still be helpful. Younger students and their parents can use this tool to learn about college costs and receive early financial aid information. You can create "what if" scenarios based on expected family income and anticipated expenses, and start to plan and save well before applying to college.
When you're ready to begin, you can sign in with your College Board user name and password or use the calculator as a guest. The advantage of signing in is that the information you enter will be saved in your account, so you can use it again and again to calculate your net price at other colleges of interest. Good luck!
The calculator is designed to give you an early indication of how much and what types of financial aid you might qualify for as a first-time freshman attending school full-time. It assumes that you are a U. S. citizen or eligible non-citizen, and that you will complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The calculator is a tool that we hope will give you a clear picture of options and opportunities so you can make more informed decisions about your college choices.
As you use the calculator, please remember:
- This is not an application for admission or financial aid.
- The results will only be as reliable as the data you provide.
- The net price calculator will only give you an estimate of your possible net price and aid eligibility. The results will be based on average financial aid packages that Pacific University awarded to first-time freshmen with certain academic qualifications and federally defined "need" for the 2013-2014 academic year.
- You must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible after January 1 of the year you plan to attend college.
Completing the calculator should take no more than 20 minutes. You will need to answer some basic questions about your and your parents' financial situation, so it might be helpful to have recent tax forms or pay stubs on hand before you begin.
