Student's Total Cost of Attendance

Your award letter outlines your financial aid eligibility and provides you with the out-of pocket-cost for the academic year. In addition to billable charges, other estimated expenses are included in a student's total cost of attendance for the 2019-20 year. Below are each of LVC's student budgets based on your housing status.

  • Books and supplies, transportation, personal expenses, and average loan fees* will not appear on the bill, but these estimates will be included in the total cost of attendance in determining your financial aid eligibility. Actual amounts of these expenses will depend on the coursework you take, your personal spending habits, and the distance between LVC and your home.

  • Books and supplies purchased at the College Store can be charged to the student account and with the completion of the Title IV Federal Student Aid Authorization form, financial aid can be used to cover these costs.

  • While graduate tuition rates are different than those listed in the chart above, the charges and allowances for room, board, books, personal, and transportation expenses for off-campus and commuters are the same for graduate students. Graduate tuition rates are found on the Tuition & Expenses page. Limited residential housing is available for graduate students. Please contact Residential Life for more information.

  • Loan Fees—This is an average amount of the 1.066% origination (upfront) fee charged to students who borrow the Federal Direct Stafford Loan. It is deducted at the time of disbursement. An average fee is included in the cost of attendance to allow the borrower to receive/borrow other sources of aid to help offset this cost. The average amount for graduate student loan fees is $198/academic year.

  • While you will be billed for each of the two semesters separately (July and November respectively), we advise that your plan for your entire academic year expenses at one time.
