Financial Aid Eligibility
- Students must complete the FAFSA by March 1. For financial aid purposes, students are now considered to be independent - no parental information is needed on the FAFSA.
- Since the first bachelor's degree has been earned, students are no longer eligible to receive federal, state, or institutional grants and scholarships.
- Students who complete the financial aid application process will be awarded a physical therapy grant equal to one-third of the graduation tuition rate. For 2017-2018, the amount is $15,017.
- Federal Direct Stafford Loan eligibility increases to a maximum of $20,500 per year.
- Since July 1, 2012, graduate students are no longer eligible for subsidized loans. The full $20,500 will be unsubsidized which means interests will accrue during all periods (during enrollment, grace period and repayment).
- After the full Direct Stafford eligibility has been exhausted, students may apply for a credit-based Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan. 4.276 origination (up front) fee, fixed interest rate of 7.0%, and no payments required while in school at least half-time.

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.
