Welcome home.


For nearly 100 years, Life Pacific University has educated & empowered students to achieve their dreams and impact the world for Christ. Acceptance into any LPU program of study is contingent on a student’s readiness to perform in the academic programs. Our admission requirements are designed to ensure you are set up to succeed. An earnest commitment to academic studies as well as a commitment to the Christian worldview are essential elements to the admittance process. We welcome all applicants who are personally committed to faith in Christ! LPU offers equal access to applicants regardless of race, color, national origin, sex or disability.

How to apply

Applicants who attended LPU within the past five years, but have been un-enrolled for one or more semesters must re-apply as a returning student. Please more: applicants wishing to return to LPU after being un-enrolled for five or more years must complete a full admissions application following the transfer student process.
The Office of Admissions will review your application and seek clearance from various departments to determine your admission.


Step One: Complete Re-Entrant Application

The application typically takes about 15-20 minutes to complete! Once you complete the first page of the application, you will be emailed a pin number so that you can stop and save your application and return to it at a later time. You can access the application here.

Step Two: Submit Official Transcripts (if Applicable)

Official transcripts are required from any colleges attended after you were last enrolled at LPU.

Step Three: Submit Character Reference

Reference forms may be completed by a pastor, a Christian leader, or a teacher who knows you well. Instructions for submitting references are on the form. Download the reference form here.

Step Four: Submit Residence Hall Application & Deposit (if Applicable)

Returning students are highly encouraged to live on campus in order to help aid in their success at LPU. Please complete the online Residence Hall Application or Exemption Form. If you intend to live on campus, please submit the Residence Hall Security deposit.

Step Five: Submit Tuition Deposit

A tuition deposit is required to confirm your intent to enroll and to secure your space at Life Pacific. Please submit your tuition deposit online at the link below. You may also submit deposits in the mail through cash or check. You can pay the deposit here.

Admission Requirements

Students who have been away from LPU for one semester or more must submit a re-entrant application in order to be readmitted to the university. Students who reenter after five years must complete a full application, similar to the transfer student process. A student with an outstanding account balance will not be allowed to re-enter until all fees are paid. The applciation must be completed by August 1st for the fall semester or by December 1st for the spring semester. A $100.00 late fee will be required if the application process is not completed by the respective deadlines. Clearance will be required from the Office of the Registrar based upon the student’s history with the school. Once approved for re-entry, the student will be contacted by the Registrar’s offcie regarding registration. If a student withdraws from the university and later retruns, he/she must meet the requirements in effect under the latest University Catalog page.
