Financial Aid Application Timeline

The financial aid application process is one that occurs over several months throughout the year. Please access the calendar below to help guide you through.

Timeframe Tasks to complete

October

  • File your FAFSA for the upcoming school year and be sure to list LHU on your FAFSA. LHU’s school code is 003323 and the FAFSA is available on October 1. 
  • PA Residents should complete the State Grant Form immediately after filing the FAFSA if this is the first time receiving a PA State Grant. Follow the link on the FAFSA application just after submitting the FAFSA application.

December

  • Begin searching for outside scholarships
  • Accepted new LHU Students who have a FAFSA on file will receive a mailed Financial Aid Award Letter in early December. The award letter lists the federal and state aid along with other important information.

March

 

  • All paid students whose FAFSA was selected for verification review, will also receive a verification request by mail. Please return all required items within 30 days.

April

  • PA Residents: If you did not yet file your FAFSA, make sure it is filed before the end of the month to avoid missing the PA State Grant deadline (May 1).

June

  • Complete Direct Loan requirements: Entrance Counseling and a Master Promissory Note. See award letter for details.
  • Forward copies of outside scholarship notifications to the Financial Aid Office.

July

  • Receive your student bill from the Student Accounts Office (your processed financial aid will appear on the bill)
  • If needed, apply for additional loan (Direct PLUS Loan for a parent or Private Loan) to cover expenses not covered by awarded aid. Most Private loans take approximately 4-5 weeks to completely process.

August

  • Assure that all financial aid requirements are complete for the start of the fall semester by reviewing the fall semester bill online. Billing information can be located via myHaven under the “Student Accounts” tab.
