Rising college costs are a consistent barrier to students accessing the colleges of their choice and pursuing their dreams. In response, Seattle Pacific University is offering new scholarship initiatives and in-state matching, and is putting a cap on future tuition increases.

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)  New scholarships

SPU offers several major scholarship opportunities that grant qualifying students thousands of dollars in tuition.

2) In-state Matching Scholar Commitment

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.

3)  Future tuition commitment

SPU is promising students and families enrolled by autumn 2021 that future tuition increases will not exceed 4% annually. This means tuition will continue to be more affordable and predictable for students and their families. Learn more
