Welcome

Student Financial Aid

The staff of the LSUA financial aid office is committed to processing a variety of student financial assistance for students through strict adherence to the many federal, state, and institutional policies that govern the individual funds.

We understand that many students require the assistance of the various financial aid programs to cover the costs associated with enrolling.  We strive to process students’ information in the timeliest manner possible.  However, as stewards of aid funds from a variety of sources, we are obligated to assure the strict adherence to all of the regulations governing all sources of student financial aid and the sources of revenue that provide for those aid resources.

Students can assist us in this process by taking responsibility to honestly and fully complete the required paperwork in a timely manner, and if requested provide appropriate documentation to support any information provided, or as requested.
