Financial Aid

Most students at Life University utilize financial aid to fund at least some portion of their education.

As a college student, you will likely use financial aid to cover the cost of tuition and possibly to assist with the cost of living expenses. If applying for financial aid is new to you, it is important you take the time to research your options and find out the aid for which you qualify.

Many college students are able to use work study, loans, grants or scholarships to pay for their education, depending on eligibility. Please review those you are eligible for on the Financial Aid Programs page.

The financial aid award package and additional options vary greatly depending upon the degree in which you are seeking and registered credits. You will want to be sure you understand the tuition and fees and observe the financial aid instructions carefully. You can download the 2016-2017 Cost of Attendance form here.


The best (and fastest) way to communicate with the financial aid team at LIFE is via email. We typically respond to email within 24 business hours and try to get you answers even faster than that when possible. See below for the contact information of the Financial Aid Counselor who will work with you based on your last name.
