Because grants and scholarships are limited, many students must rely on loans to cover at least some portion of college costs. Accelerated Undergraduate students may borrow money for education. In fact, approximately 80% of LBC’s aid recipients borrow educational loans.
The following steps represent borrowing options, beginning with the best value and proceeding to other, less favorable loan options based on interest rates, loan terms and conditions, and repayment options. These loan options may be used alone or in combination with each other.
LBC is committed to providing students and their families with the best information regarding student borrowing. For that reason, we have adopted a Student Lending Code of Conduct.
