Did you know that more than 80 percent of Lake Forest College students apply for and receive some type of financial aid? Let’s see what we can do!

While income isn’t the only factor in deciding financial aid eligibility, last year approximately 30% of families who applied for financial aid have income over $100,000, and 70% received at least $20,000 in aid.

The Office of Financial Aid offers a personalized approach, helping our students and families by providing timely information, anticipating concerns, and seeking innovative, personalized solutions. We invite and encourage those involved to become partners with us in the process. We take pride in being courteous, fair, and efficient.  

The financial aid application (“FAFSA”) is available for both the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 academic years. The 2017-2018 FAFSA asks for 2015 income, while the 2018-2019 FAFSA asks for 2016 income.
