If you have been admitted to PLU – congratulations! We think that you’ll find that PLU is a unique place that will challenge you as a student, support you as a person, and prepare you for a lifetime of success.
Before you can fully participate in all that PLU has to offer, there are several steps every admitted student needs to take. The checklist below is a great place to start. But remember, you can always call your admission counselor at 800-274-6758 if you have questions.
If you have not yet visited campus, we recommend you do so – it is one of the most important things you will do during your college search. It is a great way to help figure out if PLU will be the right fit for you. During your visit, you can meet with an admission counselor, take a tour with a student – even meet a coach or a professor. To schedule your visit go to choose.plu.edu/visit.
Review your Financial Aid package
2013-14 PLU Financial Aid offers will begin mailing in March. We encourage you to submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available January 1, 2013, to ensure optimal financial aid awarding. 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).
2013-2014 Direct Costs
Room & Meals: $10,100
Once you have received your Offer of Financial Aid, be sure to review it with your PLU 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. Our Do the Math worksheet is a helpful way to compare PLU's financial aid offer with offers from other schools you are considering.
