Welcome to the Office of Student Financial Services (OSFS). 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 OSFS at LHSI provides support to students who need financial assistance in order to pay tuition and living expenses- while attending school. The OSFS has established procedures which assure fair and consistent treatment of all applicants.

The student and his/her family bear the primary responsibility for ensuring adequate resources, including financial assistance, scholarships, and loans, to cover the cost of their education. The student has sole responsibility for obtaining financial assistance and is responsible for correctly completing all applications and processing paperwork in a timely manner. If the student does not receive financial assistance before the commencement of classes, the student is responsible for all tuition and fees due to LHSI. Students should make an appointment with the OFS to ensure they are following the correct processes to obtain the funding needed.

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. Housing expenses account for approximately 52% of the overall allowance, and are based on the average cost of a 1-bedroom apartment in the metropolitan area. Maximum allotted amount to borrow for indirect expenses cannot exceed total $28,550 for P1 students (Fall/Spring/Summer) or total $22,840 for P2 students (Fall/Spring) students. 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.

Private Student Loans are based on the creditworthiness of the borrower.
