Navigating how to finance your education can be an overwhelming process. That’s why we’re committed to making this process as clear as possible. There’s a big difference between the cost of your education (tuition, books, fees, living expenses, etc.) and what you’re actually expected to pay. That’s where financial aid comes in – it’s meant to reduce the gap!

City Builders Scholars
Equipped with a strong cohort, a clearly defined sense of purpose, and practical skills, our City Builder scholars come to Warner Pacific with a built-in support network, ready to engage the campus and persist through adversity.  Many of our City Builder students are the first in their families to attend college.

Nationally, only 11% of first-generation students graduate from public institutions in six years and only 4% from community colleges.  Our City Builders program is tailored to meet the needs of these students, empowering them to follow their dreams.

City Builder Scholars are transfer students to Warner Pacific, receive $2,000 per year, and are required to attend an intensive leadership training seminar in August prior to the start of their first year at Warner Pacific University.
