Financing Your Education
Do you find yourself asking how you might pay for your college education? Wondering whether or not you qualify for an LSSU scholarship? If so, take a few minutes to visit our Financial Aid homepage to learn about some of the resources available to you at LSSU. If you are a U.S. citizen graduating from a Michigan school in 2013, you can also learn about what it takes to earn an LSSU scholarship using our Board of Trustees Scholarship Estimator Tool. This scholarship calculator is a great way to estimate your potential for an LSSU Board of Trustees Scholarship, one of the many ways students at LSSU help finance their education.
Did you know that LSSU is one of the most affordable universities in Michigan? In fact, LSSU is in the bottom third of costs for tuition and room & board amongst public universities in Michigan. In addition, LSSU also features a "tuition plateau" that allows for a student to pay a flat tuition rate when registered for 12 - 17 credits. This means that instead of paying for each credit hour, LSSU full-time students pay a standard rate and have the ability to add additional credits (up to 17) with no additional costs! Learn more about the actual cost of your education at LSSU by visiting our Loan/Cost Estimator Tool and find out what you can expect to pay for your education.

LSSU is more than just an institution; it is home to a community of students, faculty, and staff. As a guest on our campus, we want you to feel at home too. You will find that the Admissions Office is just that: a comfortable, historical building meant to welcome guests to our campus. When you come to our office, you will have the opportunity to meet with one of our admissions advisors, whom can answer your questions about what it means to be a Laker and attend LSSU. Whether you are a transfer student, still in high school, a guidance counselor or a parent - you're always welcome at our doorstep. Questions or comments are always encouraged, and remember, the admissions advisors are here for you. Schedule a visit today!
Note for visitors to Admissions: The Admissions Office building is located in one of the original Fort Brady buildings and due to the historical nature of this building, visitors must climb a flight of stairs to reach the main floor. We understand that this may cause difficulty, therefore, we are more than happy to make other meeting arrangements, accommodating your needs. To do so, please call us at 1-888-800-LSSU (5778) or 906-635-2231 or send us an email at email@example.com.
