How to Apply for Aid 

If you’re energized by our vision to engage the culture and change the world, we want to make Seattle Pacific University a reality for you. 

We help award nearly $110 million each year, and some of that could be coming your way. Here’s how to get started.

The Process »

We’ll walk you through the main steps needed to apply for financial aid. And remember, we are always glad to assist you with any questions, so don’t hesitate to contact us.

Be ahead of the curve by following our detailed checklists for new and returning students.

FAFSA »

By this time in your college search, we guess you are familiar with the acronym FAFSA, which stands for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Submitting your FAFSA is your key to most grants, scholarships, and loans. We’ll guide you through the details.

WASFA »

Undocumented students living in Washington state are eligible to receive Washington State Need Grant funds. To apply, complete the Washington Application for State Financial Aid (WASFA). Funds are limited, so apply as soon as possible.

When you’re notified »

If you are accepted to SPU, we will send you a financial aid offer as early as March. Learn what a financial aid offer looks like, and what you can do next.
