Financial Aid

Palo Alto University’s Office of Financial Aid offers a variety of financial resources designed to help you with education-related expenses involved in obtaining your educational goal(s). Our financial assistance programs consist of grants, scholarships, loans, and work assistance. While independent professional schools have no state support or extensive endowments, some type of federal and/or alternative student loan funding is available to almost all students.

The Financial Aid Counselors are here to assist you with the application of and processing of your financial aid, understanding all of your financial options, and answer any questions or concerns you may have. We strive to make this process as easy as possible for you.

Our office is located (open 8am-4pm M-F):
