A new tuition plan at FPU will increase financial aid, add professors and improve technology, facilities and services.
“All the changes we are making will help our students succeed,” said President D. Merrill Ewert. “We are improving our access to entering students, our affordability for continuing students and the value of the degree our graduates receive.”
This year more Fresno Pacific University students are spreading the university mission of service while defraying the cost of college.
During the 2002-2003 school year FPU will receive $300,000 in state work-study funds, double the amount for 2001-2002. Federal funds also doubled to $180,000. Matching contributions of $160,000 from community agencies bring the total work-study budget to $640,000.
