How To Apply For Financial Aid

You must complete LSCS's three step process in order to receive financial aid.

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

These steps must be completed each academic year that you wish to receive financial aid. Keep in mind that the priority deadline is April 1, so submit all documentation as quickly as possible to allow time for processing. If you miss the priority deadline, don't worry! You can still apply throughout the year because funds are typically available year round.

Financial Aid Forms

Many forms are available for the financial aid process. LSCS provides forms for the academic calendar year. Complete forms carefully and submit them to the financial aid office at your campus.


Types of Financial Aid

There are several types of financial aid available to LSCS students:

Satisfactory Academic Progress

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

Students will be denied financial aid for failure to meet SAP requirements.

Meet SAP - Keep your Financial Aid

  1. Check your grades in myLoneStar Student Portal immediately at the end of the semester.
  2. If you do not meet Satisfactory Academic Progress, file an appeal immediately.

Find More Information about Satisfactory Academic Progress

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!

Disbursements & Refunds

There are strict guidelines for receiving disbursements and refunds. Student financial aid accounts may be accessed via myLoneStar.

Return of Title IV Policy/Withdrawing from Classes

If you withdraw from school prior to completing more than 60% of a term, you may be required to repay a portion of the federal financial aid received for the term.
