One of the best things about attending PUC is living in one of our seven residence halls. About 75 percent of students live on-campus, which fosters a very close-knit community atmosphere. Students live together, study together, socialize, and worship together, which gives our campus a unique sense of unity.

You don’t need to wait until you graduate to start helping with problems around the world. PUC students are already making a difference. With internships, missionary opportunities, service-learning projects, and on-campus ministry groups, you can be part of making change, today, in places like Fiji, Nicaragua, Brazil, and more.

Your professors become your mentors who can help you along your journey, and ones you can still get advice from years after graduation.

PUC Accepting Applications for Fall 2017

Hey new seniors – this blog is for you! Our online application is now open to the Class of 2017 for Fall 2017 at puc.edu/apply – and it’s free! Once you apply, you will need to submit your transcripts (showing your freshman through your junior year) and one letter of reference. The admissions office at PUC will begin reviewing applications for acceptance mid-summer.

There are many reasons why you should start working on your application to PUC right now but I’ll spare you and only give you three. Your future self will thank you for getting this taken care of sooner rather than later! Below are just three practical reasons why you should start working on your application to PUC right now. Your future self will thank you for getting this taken care of sooner rather than later!

Personal PUC site

Get Your Personal PUC Website
As soon as you apply, you will be given your personal PUC website, which is accessible at any point to help you along the way. This site allows you to track the arrival of your transcripts, reference letter, test scores, and other documents as well as the ability to chat live with an enrollment representative (business hours only). In addition to photos and videos, you will also find helpful and fun information about what PUC can offer you, including scholarships, study abroad opportunities, academic support resources, and so much more. It’s a great place to help you start learning about PUC.

FAFSA

Be Ready for Finances in October
If you haven’t already heard, this year the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will now open October 1 instead of January 1. There are two big advantages to doing your FAFSA this early:

  1. You will be able to use your (or your parent’s) 2015 tax information, which is already done.
  2. Since you will be able to submit your FAFSA information sooner to the schools you are considering, you will have more time to explore your financial aid options at each and decide which is your best option.

The student financial services office at PUC uses your FAFSA, along with your transcripts and other information, to put together your financial aid estimate, which shows approximately how much per month it would cost for you to attend PUC. Having a completed application on file and submitting your FAFSA early on will help give you and your family the financial information you need to make decisions about college.

Start Working with Your PUC Enrollment Counselor
When you apply to PUC, you will also be assigned an enrollment counselor who will work with you throughout the admissions process. The sooner you start working with them, the better! They can help you with questions about the academic program you’re interested in, your application and what other documents you need to submit, and they will also help you register for your first quarter of classes.

So don’t wait! Apply to PUC today.

Your Future at PUC Can Start Today

Back to the Future

The fall is prime college application time for high school seniors. The average student applies to nine colleges, and if you haven’t already started looking at potential schools for next fall, now’s the time – and why not start with Pacific Union College! Our online application is free and takes about 10 minutes to complete. Here are three reasons why you should consider applying to PUC now.

1. Our application process is simple.

We try not to make things too complicated for you. If you will be attending college for the first time, all it takes to complete your application is sending in your transcripts and one reference. Visit our Admissions website for more details about our admissions process, including information for transfer and international students.

2. Don’t miss out on scholarships!

In order to apply for several of PUC’s scholarships, you need to be an accepted student for the upcoming fall quarter. Our scholarship deadline is March 2nd, and we don’t want you to miss out on free money. Make sure you’re accepted by then so you can apply.

3. Be at the top of the list for classes and your dorm assignment.

Once you’re an accepted student, there are several important steps you need to take to complete the process of becoming a PUC student, but you can start with paying your $200 enrollment fee. There are several benefits to paying this fee as early as possible, including:

  • Early-bird class selection: Class registration for Fall 2016 starts April 4, but you won’t be able to register for classes with your Enrollment Counselor until the fee is paid.
  • Priority housing: Paying your fee puts you in line to receive your dorm room assignment. The sooner you pay your fee, the higher up on the list you’ll be! (If you haven’t yet, fill out your housing reservation form.)
  • Pay your fee before May 1 and we will put $100 of it towards your Fall 2016 tuition bill.

There’s never been a better time to apply to PUC – start today!
