How To Apply

How Professional and Continuing Studies applicants

Step 1:
Complete the 2009-2010 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

You may apply online at:  Our Title IV code is 003287.

The priority deadline date for undergraduates is May 1st, 2009 for the PHEAA State Grant. You will still be eligible for the Federal Pell Grant and Stafford Loan if you apply after May 1.

Remember it takes at least six weeks for the complete processing of financial aid and loans. If you wish to have your bill paid in full by the beginning of the term, receive any excess funds in a timely manner and to avoid late fees, you must complete the above items by this six-week deadline. No financial aid can be processed once you cease to be enrolled.

While you are encouraged to begin the financial aid application process, please note that financial aid cannot be awarded until you are fully accepted.

Step 2:
Complete the ">Web Institutional Data Form (WIDF). No aid will be awarded until this form is completed.

Step 3:

Every year, the federal government randomly selects a group of students for verification. If you're selected, you will be required to submit additional documentation in order to complete your application.This paperwork can be obtained from the forms section of the Financial Aid website.

Besides verification, there may be other special circumstances pertaining to your application, for which we will need to collect various documentation. You will receive a letter that details the additional documentation that is needed. The documentation must be submitted within 30 days of receipt of our request letter. (See the section below on deadlines for more information).

No aid will be awarded until the requested documentation is received by our office.

Accepted and returning students maybe use the Internet to view requested documentation and/or to determine if the Office of Student Financial Services has received any of this paperwork. To do this, log onto mylasalle, and then click on Brother LUWIS.

Why Are These Deadline Dates So Important to You?

The purpose of our deadlines is to assure that your financial aid is credited to your account by the start of the fall term. However, filing late or submitting requested documentation after the deadline may cause a reduction in your financial aid award or a delay in having your aid credited to your account.

If your financial aid is not in place to pay your bill for the beginning of the term for whatever reason, then you must be prepared to use a payment plan offered by the Office of Student and Accounts Receivable. If you do not make the necessary payment arrangements, you will incur a late fee.

Also, if you miss the deadlines and your financial aid is not in place, then you must be prepared for a delay in receiving a refund check for living expenses or a transfer of funds to your gold card to buy books.
