Financial assistance is intended to assist students and parents finance the student's education. This assistance may come in the form of grants, scholarships, employment, or loans. The funds may come from the federal and state governments, your university, bank, credit union or private sources. The first step in determining your need for financial assistance is to apply.
Each year students must complete and sign an LCU Financial Assistance Application, State of Legal Residency Form, and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) before federal aid can be awarded.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid(FAFSA) is available October 1st.
Monitor the status of your financial assistance application, view a list of documents that have been received and those that are still outstanding, review and accept your financial assistance awards, and review your student loans on the student portal.
Additional documentation may be required if the U.S. Department of Education selects the file for verification or if special circumstances exist that merit verification. Students selected for verification will be notified by financial assistance office personnel.

If your family has experienced financial hardship that was not accurately reflected on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the LCU Financial Assistance Office can review the financial information for consideration of special circumstance. The Department of Education allows financial assistance offices to review special circumstance situations on a case-by-case basis and allows for adjustments to the data elements on the FAFSA.
Loss of Income for the Student and/or Parent may include:
Additional Expenses for Parent or Student may include:
If a loss of income has occurred or unusual expenses have been incurred, it may affect the results of the FAFSA since the Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) is based upon the previous year’s income information. The loss of income or unusual expenses may affect your ability to contribute towards your or your child’s education. A loss of income or additional expenses could reduce the EFC, which may result in additional need based eligibility. Special circumstance requests will begin to be reviewed during May for the next award year. Documentation of the loss of income or additional expenses must be submitted along with the special circumstance application. Due to the volume of special circumstance requests, it may take several weeks to complete the review process.
Please contact the Financial Assistance Office at email@example.com for assistance with the special circumstance process.
