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 2019-2020, the amount is $15,992.
  • 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. 4.248% origination (upfront) fee, a fixed interest rate of 7.6%, and no payments required while in school at least half-time.
  • Students may also borrow through a student alternative loan.

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.
