How To Apply for Financial Aid
If you’re like most of our students, you’ll have to seek financial aid. The LBC Financial Aid Office can help.
Together, we’ll explore which funding sources match your eligibility and need. We’ll also help you complete all the necessary paperwork and answer any questions you may have. We’re here to put your financial worries to rest.
You should know LBC is a great value compared to many other accredited Christian and secular independent colleges. We keep tuition costs below the national average, while delivering a purposeful, Bible-centered education. Above all, have faith. You can afford it!
Beginning October 1, 2016, the FAFSA will be available to file for the 17-18 academic year. This will give families more time to file the FAFSA than in the past. The 17-18 academic year pertains to periods of enrollment beginning after July 1, 2017.
You will use 2015 tax information to complete the 2017-18 FAFSA. You will NOT need to provide tax data from 2016. This applies to both student/spouse income information and parental income information for dependent students.
The IRS Data Retrieval Tool will be available to download tax information directly from the IRS. Since 2015 tax data will already be filed, this should be easier to use and result in fewer errors and reduced verification.
Family size and number in college will still be reported based on the projected award year ahead. For example, if you are completing the 17-18 FAFSA, you will report the number in college during the fall 2017 and spring 2018 semesters. Assets are reported as of the date you file the FAFSA.
The 2016-17 FAFSA is required for periods of enrollment from July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2017. If a student is enrolling in classes during this time period, the 16-17 FAFSA should be completed.
