Financial Aid at LFS

The LFS financial aid program is designed to make an LFS education possible for all families based on demonstrated financial need and the availability of funds. LFS is proud to use the Clarity Application to determine a family’s level of financial need based on the information that families share in the application which includes assets, income, expenses, debts and most recently filed tax returns.

To get started, please go to the Clarity Application and create an account. The application typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete. The Clarity Application is also mobile-friendly so you can complete it from anywhere. You are also able to save your progress and return at any time. At the end of the application, there is a $60 fee to submit, and you can share your application with additional schools that accept the Clarity Application for no additional charge. Simply use the dropdown menu in the application to select those schools.
Please remember to return to your dashboard after you complete and submit your Clarity Application, as LFS may require you to upload additional tax documentation beyond your tax return, particularly if you are a business owner.
The deadline for completing the financial aid application, including relevant supplemental documents is Friday, March 15, 2024. 
If you need support during the process of completing your application, there is in-app support available through the “Help” button in the bottom left of the screen, as well as email and phone support at or 206-210-3752, in both English and Spanish. The application itself is also fully translated into Spanish.
