Pacific Lutheran University
Selden, United Kingdom


University description (as per official university website)

Pacific Lutheran University was founded in 1890 by a group of mostly Norwegian Lutherans from the Puget Sound region. They were led by the Reverend Bjug Harstad, who became PLU's first president. These pioneers recognized the important role that a Lutheran educational institution on the Western frontier of America could play in the emerging future of the region. They wanted the institution to help immigrants adjust to their new land and find jobs, but they also wanted it to produce graduates who would serve church and community. Education-and educating for service-was a venerated part of the Scandinavian traditions from which these pioneers came.

Although founded as a university, the institution functioned primarily as an academy until 1918. It closed in 1918 and reopened in 1920 as Pacific Lutheran College. In 1920 PLC merged with Columbia College, which had been located in Everett. Pacific Lutheran College offered a two-year degree. Further consolidations occurred when Spokane College merged with PLC in 1929. Four-year baccalaureate degrees were first offered in education in 1939 and in the liberal arts in 1942.

The institution was reorganized as a university in 1960, reclaiming its original name.

Today Pacific Lutheran University is a comprehensive university with an enrollment of about 3,600 students. As a member of the Associated New American Colleges, PLU is committed to the integration of liberal arts studies and professional preparation. A dynamic academic program features five professional schools and selective graduate programs that maintain a strong liberal arts emphasis at their core. PLU is the only Northwest university to be listed every year within the top 15 Western region universities in the "Best Colleges" survey, published annually by U. S. News & World Report.

Financial Aid

At PLU, an outstanding educational experience is only the beginning – the benefits last a lifetime. Today, more than 3,600 current students and some 40,000 alumni have found that PLU is a life-changing investment. We think you will, too.

Choosing a university is among the most important, most life-shaping investments you will ever make. Think hard. Take your time. And remember that value is more than just money spent, value is what you get for your money. And given that PLU offers academically rigorous classes, a supportive campus community unlike any other, and preparation for success in the world – you’ll find that it is time and money well spent.

Basic Steps

1. Research your financial aid options
Students are usually eligible for several different types of aid, some of which have to be repaid; some do not. We are happy to help you research the best combination of scholarships, grants and loans available to you and your family – many of which you may never have heard of. You can be sure to take advantage of all PLU has to offer.

2. Apply for aid
Start by filling out the online FAFSA– the method the federal government uses to determine how much you and your family can afford to contribute to your education. Once you have been admitted to PLU, we will begin to put together a financial aid “package” of funds that depend on a number of factors, including your enrollment status, the funds available at the time you applied, and the amount of your financial need.

3. Accept your offer
Financial aid awards are sent out beginning in February, in the order in which applications are received. We think you’ll like what you see. From there, validate your offer of financial aid by signing and returning your PLU Offer of Financial Aid.
