Apply for aid

Think you're not eligible for financial aid? There is an abundance of federal, state and institutional assistance available to qualified students. Chances are, you're one of them!

International students: it is not necessary for you to fill out a FAFSA or apply for financial aid. The university will automatically determine your eligibility. Lynn offers partial academic scholarships to qualified undergraduate international students with exceptional grades, SAT, ACT and TOEFL scores. These funds do not cover the full cost of attendance. Scholarships of between $6,000 and $12,000 per academic year are awarded, depending on the level of achievement.

The process

Applying for financial aid is fast and easy:

  1. Student completes FAFSA online
  2. Lynn receives FAFSA from Department of Education
  3. Lynn sends student notification of award
  4. Student completes paperwork to receive funding

All U.S. citizens and eligible non-citizens interested in applying for financial aid must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). You'll find step-by-step instructions on the FAFSA site, as well as other helpful information.


More information is available in the Financial Aid Handbook.

Merit-based and state funding

Did you know that no application is required for Lynn's merit-based scholarships and state financial aid?

That's right—we automatically determine and award Lynn scholarships to new students upon acceptance. We then re-determine and re-award our scholarships to continuing students at the completion of the academic year.

For state funding, we will award you estimated state aid—again with no application required on your part.

The award letter

Regardless of the source of your financial aid—state, federal or institutional—you will receive an award letter from us including all the documents you're required to complete in order to receive funding.
