Financing Resources

Glad you’re here! Now that you’ve completed Puget Sound’s Student Aid Calculator, you may have some questions about financial aid, scholarships, academic programs, or student life. We’re here to help. Check out the additional information and if you have questions, feel free to contact the Office of Admission or the Office of Student Financial Services by phone or email.

Additional Scholarships

In addition to merit scholarships (which were included in the Net Price Calculator results), Puget Sound offers scholarships for different academic interests, religious and community leadership, talent in the arts, and more.


PLUS Loans

Your calculator results indicated that all parents are eligible to apply for a PLUS loan. This is an additional financial resource that is available for families to help cover any "out-of-pocket" costs. 


Apply for Financial Aid

To apply for financial aid, you must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Designate on your FAFSA that you want your application information sent to the University of Puget Sound by including school code #003797.


Apply for Admission

Through a holistic admission process, we look for students who share a commitment to intellectual engagement and community participation while bringing diverse talents and backgrounds to our campus. We draw each class from every region of the nation and numerous countries. Once you complete your research and decide Puget Sound is right for you, review information on how to apply.
