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.
- If you have received an award offer in LoLA, you want to ensure that your classes are secured by checking for authorized financial aid. Follow these steps to check if your classes are secured.
- Learn more about the ways you can secure classes.
- The bookstore credit is available for a limited time at the beginning of each semester for those students who have money left over after they use financial aid to secure classes. Learn more about the bookstore credit. .
