How do I know if I will qualify for financial aid?
Financial aid eligibility is based on financial need. There is no income cutoff or other simple method of determining whether you will qualify for need-based financial aid or "free" money. However, you can estimate your eligibility by using the FAFSA4caster.
How is my financial need determined?
Your financial need determines the maximum amount of need-based financial aid (grants, subsidized loan) you can receive. Non-need based loans (unsubsidized loan, PLUS loan) may be used to replace the Expected Family Contribution. After your need has been calculated, your award package is determined and may include a combination of tuition waivers, scholarships, grants, work-study, and/or loans.
How much am I eligible to receive?
The amount of need-based and/or non-need based aid will depend on your financial need, as well as other factors, such as the availability of funds, award limits, and award requirements.
Once your eligibility for aid is determined, you will receive a financial aid award letter from Lake Land College, which will include the awards and amounts for which you qualify. These awards are based on full-time enrollment. You can receive financial aid for less than full-time; however, the award amounts will be pro-rated based on actual enrollment.
Enrollment status for the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters is defined as follows:
