Financial Aid


The Financial Aid Office will close every other Friday at 1 pm, beginning March 3, 2017 and continue throughout the Spring semester. We will reopen on the next scheduled business day.

What Is Financial Aid?

Financial aid helps students and their families pay for college. This financial assistance covers educational expenses including tuition, fees, books, and supplies. There are several types of financial aid that may be combined into your financial aid package.

To receive financial aid, you must complete LSC's 3-Step process:

  1. Complete a FAFSA (LSC school code: 011145).
  2. If requested, provide any additional documentation.
  3. Review/accept financial aid award(s).

Types of Financial Aid

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 student’s cost of attendance (COA). If a student’s financial aid package exceeds his/her COA, awards will be adjusted according to federal, state, and institutional guidelines.

Satisfactory Academic Progress

All students must meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements to receive financial aid at LSC. Federal regulations require all financial aid recipients to maintain SAP in a course of study leading toward a college degree, certificate, or educational objective.

Tuition & Fees

Attending LSC is an affordable option for most students. Our tuition rates are based on residency and if you need help footing the bill, financial aid is available to most students. And so are payment plans!

Financial Aid Forms

If you are applying for state grants or requesting a Professional Judgment, you will need to submit additional forms to complete the process.
