Cost of Attendance

The LBCC Financial Aid office establishes yearly standard student budgets as a basis for awarding financial aid funds. Standard student budgets reflect modest expense patterns. Your actual expenses may vary according to your lifestyle and level of enrollment. The cost of attendance listed below should assist you in planning your own budget.  All awards are based on full time enrollment.  If you are not enrolled full time at the time of payment, the disbursement will be adjusted based on your actual enrollment.
