Financial Aid & Costs
The FAFSA Simplification Act made significant changes to the application process, including the content of the FAFSA form and the eligibility calculation. The 2024–25 FAFSA includes changes in terms of format, questions asked, access to the application, and how the IRS will share data to assist applicants with completing the FAFSA.
- The opening of the 2024–25 FAFSA will be delayed until sometime in December 2023. The Department of Education has not yet provided a specific release date.
- The Expected Family Contribution (EFC) will now be called the Student Aid Index (SAI) and how the index is calculated has changed.
- More students nationwide will be eligible for the Pell Grant.
- Multiple children in college will no longer reduce the SAI (previously the EFC) which resulted in higher financial need.

We craft our financial aid offers to meet your family’s specific needs and circumstances. For the 2022 incoming first-year class, the average total expense was $24,899 for students who filed the FAFSA, with 100 percent of the class receiving institutional grants and scholarships.
Graduate Tuition & Financial Aid
Graduate students at LVC are eligible for merit-based scholarships for select programs, federal direct unsubsidized loans, and tuition benefits if offered by your employer. To receive aid, you must be enrolled in at least 4.5 credits each semester. Please note that conditionally accepted students are ineligible for federal student aid.
