Welcome to the Office of Financial Services (OFS). At Larkin Health Sciences Institute (LHSI), we are committed to providing each student with information to assist in the understanding of the financial assistance process and making financial decisions. Investing in your educational future is an immense decision and we are here to help facilitate the process. The OFS at LHSI provides support to students who need financial assistance in order to pay tuition and living expenses- while attending school. The OFS has established procedures which assure fair and consistent treatment of all applicants.
We have established a standard allowance for your direct and indirect expenses. The direct expenses are tuition and fee charges to the student’s account made by the institution. Included in the Cost of Attendance (COA) budget are expenses that are indirectly related to your education, such as an estimate for housing, food/household supplies, transportation and personal miscellaneous expenses. In keeping with common practice among financial aid administrators, the cost for indirect expenses is intended to provide a “modest but adequate” standard of living. Maximum allotted amount to borrow for indirect expenses cannot exceed total $24,600 (Fall/Spring/Summer). Students can apply for and receive financial resources up to their COA budget (direct and indirect expenses). It is our recommendation that students borrow only what is needed and what he/she reasonably repay.
