Administrative & Support

We are excited about your interest in Palo Alto University. A visit to our campus provides a great opportunity to learn more about PAU first hand. Several Open houses are held throughout the year where faculty and current students are on hand to discuss our programs. You will learn much more about our curriculums, see our campus, visit our clinic, and learn about both the research and clinical experiences of many of our current students.
The Business Office staff are here to answer your questions related to tuition, refund checks, student health insurance, payroll, and reimbursements.
