Financial Aid and Scholarships

Making College Affordable

  • Approximately 89% of Lyndon’s undergraduate students receive some form of aid.
  • In addition to low tuition, Vermonters can save up to $4,750 with the Futures Scholarship.
  • Out-of-State students can save up to $11,250.

We understand that college is a significant expense for families. But if you want to make an impact on your future, you’ll need to make an investment now. We’re here to help guide you through the process of paying for college. Our student financial services experts on both campuses can answer your questions and help you navigate the path to paying for your college degree.

Lyndon offers scholarships for full-time students enrolling for the first time or transferring in fall 2018. Vermont residents, who already benefit from our affordable in-state tuition, can reduce the cost of attendance with merit scholarships that reward academic achievement. Out-of-state students residing in our Good Neighbor and Regional Student Program/NEBHE areas can combine those tuition discounts with merit scholarships. Details about merit scholarships and regional and family tuition discounts for Vermonters and out-of-state students can be found below.

Where to start with financial aid

To be considered for all available sources of financial aid, create an FSA ID for yourself and a separate FSA ID for one parent to e-sign the FAFSA.  Submit The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) between October 1, 2017 and March 1, 2018. Use Data Retrieval (DRT) for both parent and student for the 2016 tax year.  Submitting your FAFSA after the priority date may limit financial aid eligibility.

The FAFSA may be submitted online (recommended) or by using the PDF FAFSA.

Entering Lyndon’s school code—003689—ensures that your FAFSA will be forwarded to Lyndon for review.

Additional applications may be required for state grants or private scholarships. Vermont students should apply for a Vermont State Grant at VSAC.org.

Funding for your education can come in different forms, including grants, scholarships, loans and work-study jobs. Lyndon’s Financial Aid staff is committed to providing you with the information you need to minimize the confusion, you may experience in meeting your college financial obligations.
