FAFSA News and Updates

(Last updated 3/13/24)
The FAFSA has recently undergone an overhaul by the U.S. Department of Education which has resulted in changes to the normal timing and flow of information both students and universities have come to expect. Due to the challenges for filing the FAFSA this year, we have extended our Deposit deadline for Fall 2024!
Your deposit is due by May 15, and by May 1 for Nursing majors. It is fully refundable up to May 15.
We hope this is welcome information and perhaps provides a bit of a cushion as you make your final college decision. As soon as we receive FAFSA information, we will work diligently to use that information to put together financial aid offers so that students and families can make their college decisions.

When you submit your $425 deposit, you officially confirm your place at PLNU, including your campus housing (if applicable) and course schedule. Once you enroll, your deposit is automatically transferred as a deduction from your first bill, meaning there's no additional fee!

  • Spring Semester: The deposit is due by and fully refundable through November 1st.

In the Accepted Student Community, you’ll be able to fill out several forms we need before you arrive on campus for orientation. Please note all forms must be submitted by May 1 / November 1.

  1. Personal Profile Form

    We’re committed to helping you achieve your academic goals and stay on track to graduate on time. That’s why we ask you to fill out a personal profile form. This form helps us put together your academic profile.
  2. Housing Application

    At PLNU, campus life is intentionally designed to be both fun and an opportunity for you to find community. Whether you move in as a resident or get involved as a commuter, we're committed to providing you with a comfortable, supportive home for the next few years. To receive on-campus housing or tell us you'd like to live off-campus, you’ll need to fill out a residential life form.
