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.

The FAFSA is now available to complete on October 1st beginning with the 2017-2018 application.

Current students will find the there are two academic year FAFSAs you can apply for online. One is for the current year (2016-17) and one for the coming year (2017-18). You must complete the 2017-18 FAFSA for the Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 terms.  If you plan on attending classes for Summer 2016, the 2016-2017 FAFSA must be completed.
