Financial Aid

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

The award packages and aid options vary greatly depending upon the amount of credits taken per quarter and the level of the degree which is in progress. International students are not eligible for federally funded financial aid but are eligible to apply for Life University scholarships. International applicants will need to complete the I-20 Financial document in order to be eligible to attend. Please see the International Application page for details.


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.

Undergraduate Financial Aid

As an undergraduate student, you will likely use financial aid to cover the cost of tuition and possibly to assist with the cost of living. 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.

Undergraduate students may 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.

You will want to be sure you understand the costs of attendance and observe the financial aid instructions carefully.


Graduate Financial Aid

The financial aid options for the Graduate Programs are different than those for the Undergraduate. Many students take out loans that cover the cost of tuition and the cost of living, so they can afford to focus on their education.

There are specific scholarships available to our Graduate students, as well as Work Study jobs and internships available on campus to offset the overall costs of attendance. Please review those you are eligible for on the Financial Aid Programs page.


Chiropractic Financial Aid

The Doctor of Chiropractic program is a professional-level program, and the financial aid options are different from both the Undergraduate and Graduate Programs. Many students take out loans which not only cover the cost of attendance, but also cover the cost of living so they can afford to focus on their education.

There are specific scholarships available to our Chiropractic students as well as Work Study jobs available on campus to offset the overall costs of attending. Be sure to check out the financial aid instructions. Please review those you are eligible for on the Financial Aid Programs page.
