Talk About Cost With a PLNU Counselor

We understand if any of the costs above feel overwhelming. But it turns out this is just the sticker price. With multiple forms of financial aid, the actual cost most students and families end up paying is much lower! Connect with us and ask an admissions counselor your questions about scholarships, financial aid, and more.

Speak With a Counselor

"I have learned to really get to know the student financial services team, ask questions, and talk to other people who have received financial aid. I have also gotten involved with many clubs, two on-campus jobs, and two academic honor societies. The more you become involved, the more sources and opportunities you will have to receive aid … and even if it’s only a few hundred dollars, everything adds up in the end."
