Applying to SPU

SPU students study in the library.

Apply Online

Applying to SPU is easy! We use the Common Application.

If you are applying for any 2015 term, you will need to submit the online application and the member section.  To complete your application we will need:

  • Official College Transcripts (if applicable)
  • Official High School transcript*
  • Official SAT or ACT Test scores*

    *Required for all incoming Freshmen and for Transfer students who have completed fewer than 45 quarter [30 semester] college-level credits. If you have not yet received your high school diploma, please submit a Freshman application, regardless of whether you have completed college-level coursework via Running Start, Advanced Placement/International Baccalaureate, or a similar program.

In order to be considered official, SAT/ACT scores must be sent by the testing agency, or be included on an official high school transcript. When taking the SAT you can identify your request to have your scores sent to SPU by including SPU’s test code 4694, for the ACT it is 4476.


If you are applying for Fall 2014, you will need to print out either the First Year Application or the Transfer Application and send it to us via one of the following:

                   Seattle Pacific University

                   3307 Third Ave W, Suite 115

                   Seattle, Washington 98119-1922

Once you have submitted your application, you can track your status as we process application items. Follow these steps to set up your account:

  • Go to spu.edu/banner, click on New User, and set up your account
  • If your application is incomplete, you will see an Application Menu tab.  Select this tab to view your application checklist and what items may be outstanding or yet to be processed by Admissions.
  • When your application is complete, the Application Menu tab will no longer appear as one of your choices.  That means your application is under review and you should expect to hear from us soon!
