Announcements and Important Information

April 15, 2020

As a result of Governor Andrew Cuomo's PAUSE Executive Order, many of the normal operations within Pace University's Office of Financial Aid are now being conducted remotely.  For this reason, we are not able to process requests made via postal mail at this time.  However, upon our return to campus, these requests will be made a priority.  Our forms are available on our website and MyPace Portal, and the majority of them can be completed electronically by clicking the link and logging in with your MyPace Portal username and password.  We enourage you to utilize our electronic forms and/or send your completed documents securely using our electronic Document Submission Form.  The PAUSE Executive Order has been extended through at least May 15, 2020.
