Financial Aid & Awards

The dollars to help pay for your education are out there. Finding them is the trick -- there are so many different programs and potential sources that you hardly know where to start.

Start with Lakeland’s Financial Aid and Awards Office. We’ll help you figure out what you’re eligible for and how to apply. And, we’ll be sensitive to your financial circumstances and needs.

About 60 percent of Lakeland’s students receive financial aid to help pay for their education. This includes loans, scholarships and bursaries.
Our awards program is substantial. In academic year 2020-21 our students received over $1.3 million in awards, scholarships and bursaries.
Check this section of the website for options and opportunities. Or, contact us to discuss what type(s) of aid you can qualify for and what makes the most financial sense for you.
