Most Life West students use federal aid in order to finance their education. You might be wondering how that works. Here are the basics:
In order to be eligible for the Federal Programs at Life West you will need to consider the following:
*Federal Financial Aid can only pay for core classes and the two required electives. Federal Aid cannot pay for classes not required for a student’s degree. A student registering for an additional elective beyond the required two will be notified that federal aid cannot pay for the class and a cash payment would be required. The only exception is if a student is already full time and then adding a non-required elective, as he or she is already paying full time tuition for 12 or more credits. In that scenario there is not any additional charge.
Many students wonder how their parent’s finances will affect their eligibility. As a Life West graduate student your will not be using your parent’s income to determine your eligibility. If you are married you will need to use your household income as part of your income reporting.
