LRAP Application Forms

Please read the How to Apply section of this website before submitting an application. We encourage you to use our LRAP Calculator to estimate your LRAP eligibility and level of support prior to applying for LRAP funding. Please review our LRAP Handbook to learn more about the application and forgiveness processes, including the specific calculations we use to determine support and forgiveness.

 

Please be aware that the Financial Aid Office will be closed December 23 – January 1. The Main Campus units involved in issuing LRAP funds will be closed December 20 – January 3. If you need LRAP funding in December or early January, it is highly recommended you complete an LRAP application and sign any award documents prior to December 9Otherwise, we cannot guarantee that the main campus will be able to disburse your funds before the school closure.
