Financial Support for International Students

When we say attending PLU is about value we mean that you get your money’s worth in many ways. That is particularly true for international students. We believe that you will find at PLU an academic program, location and community that will meet your needs.

For students from abroad, finding a university to attend in the United States includes many different choices. Does the university have the programs I need?

How long will it take me to complete my degree? What will the students there be like? Is the geographic location and climate agreeable? What will it cost?

Aid for study in the USA

You can afford PLU!

Competitive and comprehensive financial aid packages are available for international students. Visit the international students scholarships and grants page to learn more about:

  • The International Student Grant

  • The Opportunity Grant
Perhaps more than at other colleges and universities, when it comes to cost at PLU you will also find an education that is truly affordable.

Don’t look at our listed tuition rate and assume that attending PLU will cost more than other universities in the United States. There are a broad range of special scholarships for international students at PLU that will help bring your cost down.

For more information on the cost of attending PLU, contact Hiro Kuroiwa-Lewis. He’s the admission counselor of international students. You may reach him at 253-535-8177 or kuroiwalewis@plu.edu. Or email the admission office at intl@plu.edu.

Hiro can tell what support you can expect and what your own cost of attending PLU will be.

And remember, value is more than just money spent, value is what you get for your money. Given that PLU offers academically rigorous classes, a supportive campus community unlike any other, and preparation for success in the world – you’ll find it is time and money well spent.

At PLU, an outstanding educational experience is only the beginning – the benefits last a lifetime. Today, more than 3,500 current students and some 40,000 alumni have found that PLU is a valuable investment. We think you will, too.

That’s why we believe in the things that make PLU so unique – the student-faculty interaction, the opportunity to get hands-on experience, the chance to get the classes you need, when you need them. We also know that college is about experiences and relationships, both in and out of the classroom. At PLU, you will find this, and more. You will be challenged. You will have support. And because of this, PLU students find success – any way you choose to define it.

If PLU sounds like the place for you, now is the time to apply for admission.
