Providing for a college experience is one of the largest single investments a family will make. Pacific Union College’s resolve to make a Seventh-day Adventist liberal arts education accessible and affordable to all admitted students is stronger than ever. Last year, PUC awarded students over $40 million in aid.

We’re excited to announce a new scholarship program for first-time freshmen entering Fall 2016. The PUC Legacy Scholarship recognizes families who have made a PUC education part of their family tradition. Legacy students will receive a $1,500 renewable scholarship if their biological parent or legal guardian attended PUC (see puc.edu/scholarships for criteria).

Also beginning in Fall 2016, PUC will offer improved scholarship opportunities to high achieving students. The Maxwell Scholarship, PUC’s highest recognition, will award five first time students renewable full tuition awards (worth approximately $112,000 over four years). PUC’s most prestigious and selective scholarship is based on a combination of academic success, leadership experience, and a commitment to Christian service. Details can be found at puc.edu/maxwellscholar

In addition, PUC’s Academic Achievement and Mostert Christian Leaders scholarship amounts have been increased. All eligible incoming students must have their application materials submitted to the college by March 2 in order to be considered for the awards.

To learn more about PUC’s full scholarship program, specific criteria, and to apply, please visit puc.edu/scholarships or call 1-800-862-7080, option 1.

Parents, guardians, and students are encouraged to attend one of the 2016 PUC Financial Aid Workshops, where professionals will explain the steps students need to complete to get the highest amount of financial aid. Visit puc.edu/workshops for dates.
