Applying for Aid

To receive financial aid as you continue your LMU education, you must apply for financial aid each year you are at LMU. It is important to review the deadlines for application for the coming year.

Current students will find the there are two academic year FAFSAs you can apply for online. One is for the current year (2013-14) and one for the coming year (2014-15). You can still be considered for federal aid if you have not completed the 2013-14 FAFSA for the Spring 2014 and/or Summer 2014 Sessions.


Applying for Aid: 2014-2015 Academic Year

Current students entering in the 2014-2015 academic year who wish to be considered for financial aid awards are required to complete the following steps:
