Financial Aid

General Institutional Information

Pacific Lutheran University has signed a participation agreement with the U.S. Department of Education that allows our students to receive funding from federal student aid programs, as authorized under the Higher Education Act of 1965.  Regulations under this act require that the university (and all universities and colleges that offer federal student aid) provide students and prospective students the following consumer information.

Net Price Calculator

The net price calculator is intended to give prospective students (first-year, full time, undergraduate students only) an estimate of their out-of-pocket cost to attend Pacific Lutheran University after the average PLU gift award has been deducted.  Because PLU awards its scholarships and grants on the basis of academic merit as well as financial need, a good net price calculation will be dependent upon an honest reporting of your academic record as well as a representative picture of your financial circumstances.  Our actual award will be based on the actual information provided during your Admission application process and your actual information submitted on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).   The net price calculator is required of all schools offering Federal student aid programs.
