The Office of Financial Aid supports all prospective and continuing students with the help they need to ensure an affordable University of La Verne education.
First-time freshmen, transfer students, graduate students, and participants in our accelerated programs have unique and specific needs when it comes to financial aid. Our experienced counselors work with you and your family to provide information, financial assistance, and coordination with state and federal resources (including grants and loans) to create a comprehensive package tailored to your individual needs.

Applying for Aid
Each journey begins with a single step – or, in this case, four. The University of La Verne is ready to walk you through the aid process, from FAFSA to admission, right here.
Grants and Loans
The university will help connect you with state, federal, and private grants and loans. To learn more about them – and how to calculate your eligibility – click here.
The university has a number of scholarships available for full-time students on the La Verne campus. These scholarships are not need-based and may be renewed annually; some, like our Performance Scholarships, celebrate the artistic spirit of the Leo community.
If you’d like to know more about private scholarships, this list can help get you started.
Many students work for La Verne through our partnership in the Federal Work Study program. This financial aid opportunity provides up to 20 hours of paid employment a week during the fall and spring semesters, and every effort is made to place students in jobs related to their studies.
