Pacific is dedicated to ensuring that every military and veteran student (active, reserve, veteran, or dependent) is fully integrated into campus life and is able to take full advantage of the intellectual and cultural activities offered at Pacific.

Yellow Ribbon Program

The Yellow Ribbon Program allows Pacific to voluntarily enter into an agreement with Veterans Benefit Administration (VA) to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate. Pacific contributes up to 50 percent of those expenses and VA will match the same amount as the institution. 


Jeffrey (Jeff) Atad and Steven (Steve) Hamer are here to assist you with the transfer process.  Contact them today with any questions you may have about Pacific's veteran services, scholarship opportunities, or the transfer process.
