How Your Financial Need is Determined
If your family is like most, you will draw upon a combination of savings, assets, and current income to finance your education. Lawrence University also expects that you will contribute at least $2,000 per year from earnings during summer and/or winter break. However, we understand that for many people, these resources are not enough to cover the entire cost of a Lawrence education. Our need-based financial aid program can assist in making a Lawrence education affordable.
We use data from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the Supplemental Financial Aid Application, and federal tax returns to determine the ability of your family to contribute toward your college expenses.
