Although a private college education may seem out of reach for many, recent research from Kiplinger reveals that the actual value of some private universities may prove this assumption wrong. In 2010, Kiplinger selected Azusa Pacific University for its Top 100 Best Values in Private Colleges rankings. Read more about APU’s ranking in Kiplinger’s Best Values in Private Colleges.
APU students may take advantage of three types of financial aid: scholarships and grants, education loans, and student employment.
Scholarships and Grants
Scholarships and grants are considered “gift aid” and do not require repayment. They can come from federal, state, or private sources. Scholarships are typically merit-based, meaning they are awarded depending on demonstrated academic ability or other specific talents.
Education loans are usually repaid after graduation, may be deferred until after graduate school, and often have very low interest rates.
Military members—and in some cases their spouses and dependents—qualify for financial assistance covering tuition, housing, and books. Azusa Pacific is a Yellow Ribbon University and a Servicemembers Opportunity College, so you can be confident that you’ll receive the benefits and flexibility you need to complete your education.
On-campus student employment is available for students needing additional income to pay for education-related expenses. APU students also find work off campus in the surrounding community.

NOTE: The undergraduate Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) will transition to an entry-level masters (ELM) graduate program by 2016. This transition is being made in response to changes within the athletic training profession and in order to maintain a high-quality educational experience for athletic training students. Applications to the undergraduate ATEP will continue to be accepted in fall 2012 and fall 2013 (see Admission Requirements). The last cohort of students admitted to the undergraduate ATEP during the fall 2013 application period must complete the program by spring 2016 to be eligible to take the national Board of Certification, Inc. examination for athletic trainers. There will be no exceptions. If students do not complete the undergraduate ATEP by spring 2016, they have the following options to attain certification exam eligibility: transfer to an accredited program at a different university, or seek admission to the new ELM program at APU. For further information, please contact the program director of athletic training education.
