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.

*The Cost of Attendance (COA) does not guarantee that you will receive enough Federal or State aid to maximize your budget. Financial Aid awards are based on student's eligibility.

Federal Financial Aid

To get you started, we recommend filling out your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Your report will come back to you with a summary of the aid, loans, and scholarships you can choose from, right out of the gate. This will help you understand how much funding you already have, and how much you'll need to track down.

Scholarships

It’s a good idea to get in the habit of applying for scholarships. Notice that word, habit? We used it on purpose. You can start applying for scholarships as early as you want (even when you're still in grade school!), and you can keep applying for them all the way through graduation.

For best results, you should apply for scholarships every spring, summer, and fall, because different types of funding become available at different times of year.

Doing so takes effort and follow-through, but it's worth it. Scholarships are free money: you never have to pay them back. Oh, and don't ever tell yourself there's nothing out there for you, because the fact is, there are scholarships for just about everyone, from every walk of life. Chances are, you’re eligible for some of them!

Federal and State Grants

A grant is a subsidy that the federal and state governments offer to help you pay for college. If you're aiming for an undergraduate degree and you have financial need, you may qualify for the federal Pell Grant as well as others such as the Oregon Promise Grant.
