Student Financial Services will provide access and equal opportunity for financial assistance to eligible students through federal, state, institutional, and private sources regardless of sex, color, age, or other circumstance. We will endeavor to provide accurate, timely service while fostering an open, student-centered environment focused on ensuring that financial aid services are complementary to the mission and goals of the University. We will be responsive to the needs of the student, the University and the community.

The Student Financial Services and Office of Admissions staff prides itself on the personal attention paid to each applicant and their scholarship and financial aid packaging. Admissions will award scholarships to qualified applicants based on merit criteria. Student Financial Services will assist applicants with their federal, state and private aid. The combination of aid will be packaged with merit-based aid from Admissions.

Please take the time to review the pages on the right to familiarize yourself with federal and private financial aid. Feel free to call or email if you have any questions concerning your scholarships and financial aid at Alaska Pacific University.
