In today’s economic climate, many graduate students receive some type of financial aid program. Lawrence Tech participates in a number of student finance programs including grants, scholarships, work-study, military benefits, and loan programs.

Don’t let funding stand in the way of your educational goals. LTU has a financial aid staff dedicated to helping you find the right financing and award options to fund your education. Let LTU’s Financial Aid Representatives walk you through the options.

Federal Financial Aid

Applications for graduate financial aid are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the academic year. Students interested in applying for financial aid are encouraged to do so at least 4 weeks prior to the start of a session. This ensures that aid is awarded in a timely manner and is available at the beginning of each session.

To apply for federal or state financial aid programs, please download the FAFSA application from www.fafsa.ed.gov.

LTU’s FAFSA number is 002279.

Students who apply for financial aid and are eligible (see below) may be offered a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan up to a maximum amount of $20,500 for the academic year.
