Here For The Career
Tiger Perspective—Marlu Reyes

“I came to college to position myself for greater financial stability, and the career pathways that the Accounting major offers me have shown that I can realize that goal. I am very confident about where my career is heading. Pacific has prepared me to take on a high-pressure career with ease!"

We know how important understanding financial aid is to your overall Pacific experience. The financial aid website is a great place to start for resources and more information about the topics below. As always, if there's something you can't find on the website, or just want someone to walk you through it (and we wouldn't blame you at all!), you can contact the financial aid team.

It's not too late to file your 2023-2024 FAFSA

If you haven't already, we strongly encourage you to fill out the 2023-24 Free Application for Federal Student Aid, aka the FAFSA, especially if you’re interested in being reviewed for potential grants or student loan opportunities. If you have filed, make sure you’ve sent it to Pacific; our school code is 001329. Need help? We have tips in our FAFSA Guide, and you can watch recordings of our recent FAFSA webinars on the financial aid website.

Read your financial aid offer letter thoroughly

Keep an eye out for an email with your financial aid offer letter. When you receive it, gather your parents or supporters and take 30 minutes to do an in-depth read of it. We know they're not the easiest thing in the world to understand, so we strongly encourage you to contact the financial aid team if you'd like help. 

Verification sounds intimidating, but we promise it isn't

You'll receive an email with instructions if you are selected for verification. If you’re selected, please don't be alarmed — you're not being singled out. The U.S. Department of Education selects about 30% of all students who file the FAFSA for verification, and many times, it's random. Verifying your information ensures that you will receive the maximum amount of aid you're eligible for.

Tiger Perspective—Sarah Hess

“I was considering some other campuses, but ultimately I would have felt like a small fish in a big pond, whereas at Pacific, I get individualized professor attention. I really feel like the professors care about each student here, which I really like.”

Tiger Perspective—Cruz Gonzalez

“When I arrived at Pacific, I thought I’d be just another transfer student at the Conservatory left to my own resources, but from the audition day to my performances, the faculty have been there to help me in every way possible. The campus feels like a home where we can shape our ‘noise’ and ideas into definable pieces of art. It’s a great place to explore new music and see a smiling face around every corner.”
