Financial Aid By the Numbers


of Incoming Class Received Grant or Scholarship from LVC


Average Financial Aid Package for Incoming Class


Average Academic Scholarship for Incoming Class


Total Scholarship & Aid Expenditures for Incoming Class

Financial aid was a big factor when I was shopping for colleges. I was choosing between two schools that were completely different from one another—LVC and a public university in Pennsylvania. When my father and I calculated the costs, we found that both schools came out to be the same price, even with the higher sticker price for LVC.
