Pacifica Online Financial Aid System

The purpose of financial aid is to provide financial assistance to students enrolled at least half-time (minimum of 3 units each quarter) in an eligible program at Pacifica. Pacifica’s Board of Trustees, administrators, faculty and staff do all they can to ensure a quality education that is accessible to all students. While the process of financing an education can be challenging, the Financial Aid Office is committed to making this process as manageable as possible.

One way we hope to assist you is to provide secure online access to real-time information regarding your financial aid status.  From this website you may:  

  • complete our institutional aid application online 
  • view, modify, and accept/decline your financial aid award letter online
  • check the status of your student loans for the current year
  • check anticipated disbursement dates for each quarter 
  • view a list of documents we have received from you and a list of the documents still outstanding
  • access to your student loan history through the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS)
