Financial assistance is intended to assist students and parents finance the student's education. For undergraduates, 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. Graduate students are only eligible for loans (click here to learn more about Financial Aid policy for graduates). The first step in determining your need for financial assistance is to apply.
Each year students must complete and sign an LCU Application for Financial Assistance, State 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.
