Named a “Best Value School” for 2016

September 15, 2015

For another year, Warner Pacific is ranked in the Top 10 Regional Colleges in the West (ranked 10th) and named as a “Best Value School” (ranked 10th) and a “Best College for Veterans” (ranked 7th) by the U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges 2016 edition.

Warner Pacific was recognized as one of the Top 10 Best Values in Regional Colleges – West (ranked 10th). The College strives to make private, Christian higher education accessible to as many qualified students, and their families, as possible.

In 2008, Warner Pacific reduced tuition significantly and continues to keep it an affordable level, with tuition and fees averaging just $21,460 a year, more than 40% less than the average private college in Oregon and Washington.

Warner Pacific also launched “Freedom to Flourish” in 2014. This is Portland’s first loan repayment assistance program for undergraduate students that promises incoming freshmen that the College will provide assistance to repay student loans after graduation to those who need it (valid for students who entered Warner Pacific as freshmen in Fall 2014 through Fall 2015).

“We’re very aware of the financial strain facing many families,” said Dale Seipp, Jr., Vice President for Enrollment and Marketing. “That is why we are committed to keeping increases in tuition, fees, and housing to a minimum, providing affordable, Christ-centered, private liberal arts education that serves students and families for whom college has traditionally been out of reach.”

Other resources offered to students include scholarships, work-study positions, financial literacy coaching, and a free membership into $ALT.
