You Can Go!
Education Abroad

University of the Pacific believes that every student should be able to study abroad.

The top 2 MYTHS about study abroad are "I can't afford it" and "I'd have to delay my graduation."  NOT TRUE!

With your advisor's approval, you can fulfill degree requirements and graduate on time!  You can use ALL your financial aid, AND Pacific will cover your program's tuition bill. Plus, there are tons of scholarships available!

What's more, Pacific partners with some of the best program providers in the industry so you can have the experience of a lifetime!
