WPC is also recognized for as a Best Value School by US News

September 15, 2016

We are so pleased that for another year, Warner Pacific not only ranks in the Top 10 Regional Colleges in the West (ranked 6th), the College was also named as a “Best Value School in the West” (ranked 7th) by the U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges 2017 edition. To determine which colleges and universities offer the best value for students, U.S. News takes into account both academic quality and cost. We strives to make a 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 $22,710 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.
