Financial Aid

Financial aid for students enrolled in Summer and on an academic plan will not be awarded or authorized until August 7. Please check LoLA on August 5 for SAP updates.

Be sure your Fall 2019 classes are scheduled and secured by August 11 to avoid late fees. Log in to LoLA today!

Our goal is to provide the best possible service to students and families who are in need of financial assistance to meet the increasing cost of higher education. The financial aid process is a collaborative effort in which students, their families and the Financial Aid office each have their own responsibilities to follow. 

  • Students and their families are primarily responsible for funding the student's college education.
  • Students are responsible for successfully completing their education and repaying their loans. 
  • The Financial Aid Office is responsible for properly administering the Financial Student Aid Programs.
