Located in a quiet residential neighborhood, Seattle Pacific University has a parklike campus that houses a university community that combines the latest technology with long-standing traditions. It’s a leading Christian university only a few minutes from Seattle’s bustling, cosmopolitan city center, giving students an opportunity to gain real-world experiences in their chosen majors.

Seattle Pacific admits students who have academic characteristics that predict their success in the university programs to which they seek enrollment and who exhibit personal qualities that indicate a contribution to the mission of the University.

  • SPU admits students without discrimination as to race, color, nationality, creed, age, or sex, in line with our original charter.
  • A strong college preparatory program in high school is recommended and prepares students for success at the university level.
  • In addition to academic ability, factors such as intellectual curiosity, goals, leadership, responsibility, personal and social adjustment, Christian commitment, and a desire to serve the community are considered.
