Review your Financial Aid Offer

Financial Aid Offers for students starting Spring 2016 are sent out as soon as possible. If you have not yet received your offer, know that our Financial Aid Office is working to get offers out soon. Fall 2016 PLU Financial Aid offers will be mailed starting in March.  To ensure optimal financial aid awarding, we encourage you to submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) (for students starting Fall 2016, the 2016-17 FAFSA is available starting January 1, 2016).

The FAFSA is free, and it is the best way to see how much it will cost to attend PLU. (Note: When filling out the FAFSA form, remember that PLU’s FAFSA school code is 003785).  Once your Offer of Financial Aid has been mailed, you also have the option to view it online on your student account information (Banner Web). Banner Web log-in instructions can be found here. Be sure to review your financial aid offer with your PLU Transfer Admission Counselor, who is happy to either schedule an over-the-phone or face-to-face meeting with you and your family to answer questions regarding scholarships, grants, loans, work study, and payment options.

Pay your Enrollment Deposit

Once you have been admitted to PLU, you may pay your $200 Enrollment Deposit to confirm your spot in the entering class of Spring or Fall 2016, secure your housing assignment (if living on-campus), and prepare for class registration. You can pay the Enrollment Deposit online at  If you are using a military benefit to pay for college, this can be deferred. Please let us know if this is the case.

Set up your PLU ePass

The PLU ePass is your PLU student email account, as well as login to give you access to a wide range of resources such as PLU web pages, the Sakai Learning Management System, and network registration for your devices.  Click here to set up your ePass.

Complete Your Online Payment Contract

Before registering for classes, all students are required to complete an online payment contract each academic year.  The Online Payment Contract is where you will select your payment option for the next academic year for any remaining balance after financial aid.

Schedule your Registration Appointment

New transfer students can register for Spring 2016 beginning December. For those entering Fall 2016, registration for classes begins May 2, a full month before any incoming first-year students.  Once you have paid your Enrollment Deposit, signed up for your ePass, and completed the Online Payment Contract, proceed to the PLU New Transfer Student Registration website to set up your registration and advising appointment.

Two other important steps to complete before starting at PLU are to fill out and submit a Medical History Record and make sure any final official transcripts are mailed to PLU.

Most importantly, call us with questions – we are happy to help you figure out if PLU is right for you. Call the PLU Office of Admission at 253-535-7151 to set up a meeting.
