Although payment of tuition is the responsibility of the student, the University makes every effort to assist students in attaining adequate levels of financial support. Students should utilize private as well as public fund resources (e.g., banks and private scholarships as well as the government loan programs). The professional staff in the Student Financial Services Office will work with each student in reference to the loan programs.
Financial aid is also available from the sources described in this section. Applicants for financial aid are required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the Web Institutional Data Form (WIDF). This form can be completed through the mylasalle portal. If the student is a loan applicant, all awards must be reported to the Office of Student Financial Services for loan eligibility computation. For further information, please call the Office of Student Financial Services at 215.951.1070.
Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan
Graduate students may borrow up to $20,500 per grade level of full- or half- time study. The term of the loan should always be for a two-semester period to be in compliance with federal regulations. Interest payments must be made on a quarterly basis while the student is enrolled and for the six-month period following attendance, though these payments can be added to the loan principal. To be considered for either program, students must submit the FAFSA and the WIDF.
Veteran’s benefits are available for graduate students. Students who qualify for benefits should contact the Registrar’s Office at 215.951.1020. Information for full-time and part-time students is available.
Late Payment Penalty
Any balance carried one month past the official first day of the semester will be subject to a late fee equaling one percent of the total amount due on that day. This fee will continue to be assessed on a monthly basis for the remainder of the term. If you are unable pay the balance in full, you are encouraged to enroll in the La Salle University Deferred Payment Plan or apply for financial aid.
