For prospective students
We have faith in your future
Rising college costs are a consistent barrier to students accessing the colleges of their choice and pursuing their dreams. In response, Seattle Pacific University lowered tuition by 25% last year and is offering new scholarship initiatives and in-state matching.
Why? Because we think a nationally ranked, private education should be accessible. We believe paying for college should be transparent and straightforward. And we believe in investing in our students.
What Tuition Reimagined gives our students
1) Affordable private education
Last year, SPU took the historic step in making college accessible and lowered tuition by 25%. This also lowered future SPU students' tuition for years to come.
SPU offers several major scholarship opportunities that grant qualifying students thousands of dollars in tuition.
SPU students who receive financial aid.
This commitment matches the tuition rate of the premier public university in the qualifying student’s home state, giving high-achieving students a nationally ranked, private education — at a public school cost. Qualifying students' SPU tuition and fees will be equal to or less than that of their home state's flagship public university.
4) Future tuition commitment
SPU is committed to keeping future tuition costs as low as possible, striving to keep costs affordable and predictable for students and their families.
Best National University
For the sixth year in a row, SPU is ranked among the best universities in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. We didn’t compromise quality by reducing tuition. Students will still receive the same SPU experience characterized by academic excellence, world-class professors, career connections, life-changing community, and deep faith.
