Student Consumer Information


Under the 2008 Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA), all postsecondary institutions participating in federal financial aid programs are required to make available certain consumer information to current and prospective students to assist consumers in making more informed decisions about their education options. Where applicable, each section lists links where additional information is available. Additionally, the information is available by paper copy upon request.

BPPE Annual Reporting -  

Beginning in 2014, Pacifica Graduate Institute is required by the California Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE) to fill out the following forms. You will see that data has been collected beginning in 2014.
School Performance Fact Sheets: There are four specializations within the Depth Psychology Program.  Each specialization leads to either a Masters or Doctorate degree.  We have chosen to list them separately so that students get the information relative to their interest. See links below.
2014 Catalog: The BPPE requests that we show the catalog for the reporting period which coincides with the academic year 2013-2014.  Please refer to the current catalog for the 2015-2016 for the most up to date information. See link below.
Annual Report: This report contains information about the Institution in Section I.  There is a separate report in Section II for each of the degree programs being offered. See link below.
Reporting Periods
The date ranges are different for the data presented here than what is required to be presented in the sections on Gainful Employment, resulting in slightly different statistics.
Time to Completion
Pacifica provides students in need with a generous leave of absence policy to accommodate the complexities of the lives of adult students while maintaining high academic standards. Therefore, time to completion rate averages can be lengthened by those students who need to withdraw and re-enter the program.
Many of our students choose to take longer to complete their degree than the program minimum (five years for Doctoral Programs and 2 years for Masters Programs). This enables them to engage more deeply in rigorous study, and research all while continuing adult lives. The doctoral programs emphasize that a dissertation has a personal, as well as an academic, component that enhances the quality of the research and the professional development of the student. 
For more information concerning time to completion please refer to the Gainful Employment section for each program.

Cohort Default Rate -A 3-year cohort default rate is the percentage of a school's borrowers who enter repayment on certain Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Program or William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program loans during a particular federal fiscal year (FY), October 1 to September 30, and default or meet other specified conditions prior to the end of the second following fiscal year. The U.S. Department of Education releases official cohort default rates once per year.
