Financial Aid General Information

Lakeland University is committed to making a quality college education affordable. In addition to institutional scholarships and grant funding, the university participates in federal and state grants, loans and campus employment opportunities for students.

Financial need is defined by federal regulations as the difference between the cost of attending college (tuition, room and board, books and supplies, miscellaneous expenses, and transportation) and the amount of money a student’s family is able to contribute toward educational expenses. This family contribution is calculated from information provided by the student applicant on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

To be eligible for financial aid, a student must be enrolled in a minimum of six (6) semester hours per term. Federal Pell Grant eligibility may be available at three (3) semester hours of enrollment.

The following describes the general application process, the types of financial aid available, satisfactory academic progress, and student rights and responsibilities.
