Cost of Attendance for the 2020-2021 Academic Year

The Financial Aid Office establishes a Cost of Attendance budget each year as the basis of awarding financial aid for the academic year. These budgets reflect the “average cost” of attendance for an LSSU student.

If your actual expenses are higher, you may request a review of your budget for certain expenses.

Do you need help estimating your costs?

The Net Price Calculator shows estimated amounts awarded in grant and scholarship aid.
