Lackawanna College makes every effort to provide financial assistance to all eligible students.
The Financial Aid Program operates in harmony with the principles of student financial aid administration. The primary goal is to help meet the financial needs of students to enable them to secure a college education, while realizing that the students and parents have the primary responsibility to provide a reasonable amount of financial assistance toward a student’s college expenses. Financial aid is regarded as a supplement to students’ and parents’ resources.

To apply for all federal, state, and campus-based financial aid programs and/or student loans, a student must first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).When this information is processed, financial aid award packages are developed after first determining the expected family contribution (EFC). The types of aid awarded will vary with the individual student’s needs and may consist of a combination of grant, loan, work-study and scholarship assistance.
