How to Apply for Financial Aid as a Dental Hygiene Student

1.  Apply for Admission 

2.  Create an FSA ID 

  • The FSA ID (a username and password) has replaced the Federal Student Aid PIN and must be used to log in to certain U.S. Department of Education websites.
  • Your FSA ID confirms your identity when you access your financial aid information and electronically sign Federal Student Aid documents. 

3.  File the FAFSA

  • Priority filing deadline: January 15th.
  • Review Dental Hygiene FAFSA Tips
  • The Free Application for Federal Student Aid is the basic application document for federal and state aid.
  • If necessary, use estimated 2017 information to complete your FAFSA, then check your figures after tax returns are filed and submit any necessary corrections. 
  • To have your FAFSA information sent to Pacific, enter school code 001329.
  • If you file your FAFSA over the Internet and you forgot your FSA ID or password, go here.
  • All online filers should print and retain the confirmation page.
  • You must be admitted before we will send you a financial aid award letter, but don't wait until you have been admitted to file the FAFSA!

4.  Monitor your email address

  • If additional documentation is needed to complete your file, you will be notified via your Pacific email address.
  • Please ensure that you regularly check your email account to assure we have everything necessary to complete your packaging.
