Christian Life Profile

Dream, achieve, flourish

Warner Pacific College is dedicated to seeing individuals, families, and communities flourish. As an urban college designed to serve students from diverse backgrounds, we know that for a city to thrive, its leaders must be prepared to engage actively in a constantly changing world.

Invest in your future without breaking the bank
With a tuition that is 35% lower than the average Northwest private college, we’ll make sure you get the most out of your educational investment. Through Freedom to Flourish, our innovative loan repayment assistance program, you can be confident that loan debt will not stand in the way of your plans for the future.

Your education on your terms
Our Christ-centered liberal arts approach invites you to seek answers to difficult questions and challenges you to expand your comfort zone in order to explore the ways in which you understand society, community, and faith. A student-faculty ratio of 12:1 means you will have professors who know you by name and are dedicated to guiding you throughout your college experience.

Where faith and scholarship lead to service
Students at Warner Pacific participate in hands-on service throughout our community. Tutoring at local schools, improving nonprofit facilities, and getting to know our friends who live outdoors are just a few of the ways you can help make Portland a better place. In just one year, our students provided 51,544 hours of service to Portland, valued at over $1 million!

The city is your classroom
Warner Pacific is located in the heart of Portland, Oregon, one of the country’s most vibrant and unique cities. Bursting with artists, musicians, restaurants, and boutiques, Portland offers something for everyone. In addition to campus activities, students are encouraged to explore all that Portland has to offer.
