Affordability: Investing In Your Future

A college education is an important investment but represents a major expense in most family's budgets. At Lake Erie College, we are committed to helping students find the means to afford a quality private education. We provide guidance for first-year and transfer students, current students and students in our graduate programs.

We explain federal, state and institutional resources to help students and parents meet those expenses. The most common forms of financial aid include gift aid in the forms of grants and scholarships, and self-help aid programs in the form of federal student loans and college work study employment. The office of financial aid provides information about financing options including private educational loans and the Federal Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS loan).

Our philosophy of personalized financial aid rewards students' academic achievements and makes the valuable Lake Erie College experience affordable. Together, we hope to help make your educational goals a reality.
