Before You Get Here

  • 1Finish your application. Whether you need to submit your transcripts or a reference, turn in any missing paperwork ahead of time to maximize your time during Admitted Students Day.
  • 2Pay your $200 enrollment fee. This is required before registering for classes with your advisor. Pay the fee online or call (707) 965-7530. If you pay your fee before May 1, $100 of it will be put towards your fall tuition bill!
  • 3Fill out your housing form. The sooner you pay your fee, the higher up on the list to receive your dorm assignment you will be! If you haven’t yet, fill out your housing reservation form now.
  • 4File your FAFSA. One of the most important things you can do to prepare for college is to file the FAFSA. The FAFSA determines your eligibility for student financial aid. Having your FAFSA completed before you get to campus for Admitted Students Day will help our financial counselors put together an accurate estimate for your family to see how much PUC will cost. To have your FAFSA information sent to PUC, include PUC’s school code—it’s 001258.
  • 5Gather the necessary items to be cleared to work on campus. You will need to complete an I-9 form in order to get a student job at PUC, as well as provide proof of your employment eligibility, such as your passport, driver’s license, birth certificate, and/or Social Security card. See the Student Employment page for more information. Please note, you must present original documents, not photocopies or screen shots.

Stay the Night

The college provides complimentary guest housing for families travelling from long distances on a space-available basis; please contact us about availability before your arrival. Call (707) 965-6313 to reserve your room. We also maintain a list of hotels and accomodations in the area for your convenience.



Join Us for Vespers & Church

Every Friday evening, the Pioneers family gather together for worship and fellowship in the PUC Church Sanctuary. This week we are excited to welcome you for our annual Student Week of Prayer. There will be student speakers for both vespers and church.


Try a Local Favorite

Giugni’s Deli is a staple among the PUC campus and locals alike. Stop in for an award-winning sandwich and be sure to add their famous Giugni juice to get the full, delicious experience.


See the Sights

If you ask us, there’s no place better than the Napa Valley. Take a drive or a nice walk around the nearby towns of St. Helena, Calistoga, or Napa for some incredible shopping, art, and natural wonders.
