Steps for New Students
Fall 2013 Gap Grants
The University offers supplemental grants to assist selected students in meeting their financial obligations. Pacific Gap Grants are not intended to cover a student's entire outstanding balance; rather they are intended to assist students in constructing a viable financial plan to continue at Pacific. To qualify for a Gap Grant the following criteria should be noted:
- Student applying for a Gap Grant must have unmet need
- Grants are for the 2013 Fall semester only and do not represent continuing additional financial support
- Grants are intended to provide "gap" support and most grants will be between $250 to $750
- Students must possess an outstanding balance of less than $1,500-$2,000, and the ability to make up the remaining difference
- Grant Recipients must have exercised all Federal Loan eligibility (i.e. Stafford and Perkins)

Financial Responsibility and Literacy

Visit our Financial Resources section to find useful resources including costs/budget worksheets, a glossary of financial aid terms and a number of resources about financial literacy, including some past presentations and workshops.
