Scholarships and
Financial Aid

Define “affordable.”

Whether you’re a first-year or a transfer student, whether you come from a long line of college graduates or you’re the first in your family to attend college, you might want to know the answer to this question: How do I pay for my education at Seattle Pacific?

To help break down your equation, take a look at the handy (and eye-opening) Net Price Calculator.

Keep in mind that 95 percent of SPU undergraduates currently receive scholarships and/or need-based financial aid.

And at SPU that aid isn’t just for valedictorians, which means our students borrow less money than the average college student. Most people say that’s a very good thing.

We’ll also show you how to apply for aid — starting with the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form — and find a job or internship in one of the world’s coolest cities.

In the end, don’t let all the money-talk scare you. At SPU, you’ll get to know a full lineup of staff whose purpose and passion are to cheer you on, from your admissions application form to graduation gown.
