Procedures

Can I benefit from financial aid during my first term of enrollment?

Yes.

I started in the spring term. Does this mean my financial aid is valid until next spring term?

No. The decision expires at the end of the current academic year. To maintain your aid you should re-apply for the next academic year within set deadlines.

If I am granted financial aid but I don’t enroll in that term, will the decision be automatically carried forward to the next term?

Yes, if the applicant is joining the program in the same academic year in which the decision is made.

Is it true that a student who was previously rejected and is now petitioning for a change in decision will automatically be rejected?

No. Files are re-studied in that case. However, any stated changes should be documented.

How long can a student benefit from financial aid?

Check eligibility.

Is it true that financial aid is cancelled if a student gets a GPA below 2.00 in the first term?

Yes.

How can financial aid be increased within the course of the same academic year?

By petitioning, within announced dates, to the Financial Aid Committee with documentation of new facts.

What happens if I drop out of courses (during the term)?

Nothing changes during the term. You should continue working your total allocated hours. All withdrawn credits are counted within your total credit eligibility.

Can I request a loan, without being on the work-study program?

No.

Can a student benefit from both LAU loans and LAU-arranged bank loans at the same time?

No.

Can a student get an LAU-arranged loan (or LAU student loan) covering the whole tuition?

No. LAU grants the appropriate amount depending on need and budget constraints.
