Student Financial Services

Fresno Pacific University is committed to making your education possible, starting with affordability. Our Student Financial Services staff is here for you every step of the way and has connected over 98% of our students to aid. Several forms of aid are available, and we encourage you to apply and explore all your financial aid options.

COVID-19 Student Financial Aid availability

Student Financial Services continues to help Fresno Pacific students. Our office is closed during this time, so here’s how to make the shift online:

  • You can still reach our office by email at sfs@fresno.edu, or by phone at 559-453-2041. Please leave a voicemail if no one answers and we will get right back to you.
  • If you are expecting a refund from your financial aid, the best way to receive that is through direct deposit right into your bank account. By doing this you will not have to wait for your refund to come through the mail. You may set up direct deposit at my.fpu.edu (click on the “Online Payment” tile). Once in the Online Payment Center, click on “Electronic Refunds” (on the right) and follow the process to verify your account.
  • If you have a payment due, please make your payment through our Online Payment Center at my.fpu.edu (click on the “Online Payment” tile). If you need to set up an authorized user (e.g. a parent or guardian) to make the payment, you can click on the “Authorized User” link from the Online Payment Center (top right). Once they have their login email, they will choose the guest user option for my.fpu.edu and click on the “Online Payment Center for Parents” tile.
  • Cashier Hours: The Cashier will be available by phone to take payments starting Monday, August 17th from the hours of 10:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., Monday-Friday. 559-453-5586
  • Advisors are currently still accepting appointments. You can meet with your Advisor for a phone or video appointment. Also, if you are having a hardship due to lost employment or other reasons related to our current crisis, please schedule an appointment with your Advisor so that we may find out how we can best assist you. Please contact our office to schedule an appointment if you need one at this time, (559) 453-2041.
  • Please do not forget to complete the new 2020/2021 FAFSA on their website or through the mobile app.

Financial aid is the only reason I am in school. I have been fortunate enough to have financial aid cover all of my schooling because I cannot afford it on my own. When I met with a financial advisor, he was helpful and answered all my questions!
