Financial Aid Process

We help you build a financial aid package to make Landmark College affordable.

Students and families interested in financial aid should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) from the Department of Education. This is the only application that is required for awarding both federal grant aid as well as Landmark College need-based scholarships. If you are interested in applying for a Merit/Recognition scholarship through Landmark, please complete the Merit Scholarship Form [PDF] and submit with an essay.

Applying for Aid

  1. Apply early by filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online as early as January 1. Be sure to include Landmark College Title IV Code: #017157 as a recipient of your FAFSA results.
  2. If you have filed your FAFSA before February 15th and have already been accepted to the college, expect to receive your financial aid award package by March 1st, which outlines your eligibility for federal and Landmark scholarship sources. Applications are reviewed as they are received. Awards are typically made within one week of application receipt.
  3. Let the financial aid office know if there are any special circumstances that your FAFSA does not demonstrate (parent job loss, medical expenses, etc.) so that we may work with you to tailor a financial aid package that meets your needs.
  4. Apply for scholarships with private/outside organizations such as civic organizations, your parent's employer, churches and other community organizations.

Once the student has made the decision to enroll at Landmark College, an enrollment deposit should be sent to the business office. Please notify the Financial Aid office of which aid offers you would like to accept. Students must reapply for financial aid each year. Awards received may change from year to year as information about the student’s financial situation may change.
