There are several types of financial aid available to LSC students and financial aid packages may include more than one type of award.
The combined total of all awards must not exceed a studentís cost of attendance (COA). If a studentís financial aid package exceeds his/her COA, awards will be adjusted according to federal, state, and institutional guidelines.
Workforce scholarships, provided through Workforce Solutions, allow students to obtain the skills needed to successfully reenter the workforce.
What Do They Cover?
The scholarships cover the cost of tuition, fees, books, supplies, and other related costs for individuals who enroll in one of the training programs on the Gulf Coast Workforce Boardís High-Skill, High-Growth Occupations list.
How Are Workforce Scholarships Different?
Workforce scholarships are only for students who are interested in short-term workforce training so they can quickly enter the workforce.
Federal and State Work-Study Program provide jobs for students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay educational expenses.
How Does It Work?
Each campus has a career service office that can also help you with other student job opportunities. Work study can be awarded to students with need who work on campus and who are paid according to the hours worked.
Awards vary based on amount of need and work-study students are not guaranteed a job. Work study earnings are not paid in advance so they cannot be used to pay the direct costs (tuition, books, etc.) of the semester in which they are awarded.
