Student Financial Services

Welcome!  We assist students and families in the financial aid process, including completing the FAFSA and WASFA applications, applying for federal and private alternative loans and understanding all the policies and procedures that can make the financial aid process a complicated and confusing process.  We hope you will find the information on our website to be convenient and thorough in addressing your financial aid, student accounts, and billing questions.  Click on the blue FAQ box to the right, or the “Contacting Us” tab above for answers to questions we are most frequently asked.

If you have questions regarding class registration, your academic records or anything regarding university academic policies, please contact the Registrar’s Office or the Center for Student Success.  On-line access to many of these services, as well as your financial aid records are all available via your Banner Self-Service, 24/7.

Our Mission

Student Financial Services seeks to provide comprehensive financial education, services and support for students, families and the PLU community.

We work to accomplish our mission by assisting students and families in understanding their educational costs,  applying for financial aid funds, and exploring other possible funding options.  We assist students in navigating the financial aid application process and informing and assisting them in completing the steps necessary to receive their aid funds and communicating the policies that affect their continuing eligibility.

We work to educate students for lives of financial success through financial literacy programs, including understanding and managing student loan borrowing and personal finances.
