We want to make Seattle Pacific University a reality for you. 

We help award nearly $110 million each year, and some of that could be coming your way. Here’s how to get started.

Apply for Aid

We’ll walk you through the main steps needed to apply for financial aid. And remember, we are always glad to assist you with any questions, so don’t hesitate to contact us.


Undocumented students living in Washington state are eligible to receive Washington State Need Grant funds. To apply, complete the Washington Application for State Financial Aid (WASFA). Funds are limited, so apply as soon as possible. Instructions on how to complete the WASFA can be found here


By this time in your college search, we guess you are familiar with the acronym FAFSA, which stands for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Submitting your FAFSA is your key to most grants, scholarships, and loans. We’ll guide you through the details.

When you're notified

If you are accepted to SPU, we will send you a financial aid offer. Learn what a financial aid offer looks like, and what you can do next.
