Affordability and How Financial Aid Can Help

More than half of our students receive some sort of financial assistance.

When you are admitted into college, you and your family will have a variety of questions about how your family will be able to maintain the costs for your college education. One of the most frequently asked questions among college applicants is, “How do I cover the costs for tuition, housing, meals, transportation and books?” Each family’s strategy will be different based on their personal circumstances. There are numerous options available to make your education affordable. Lamar State College Port Arthur offers many financial aid options to help you pay for college costs. Within this site you will find information about applying for financial assistance, costs, types of aid and more.

The purpose of the Office of Student Financial Aid is to provide financial aid to all eligible students using the guidelines of the U.S. Department of Education, the State of Texas and the policies of Lamar State College Port Arthur. The Financial Aid Office provides personal advisement in all aspects of the financial aid process to assist students toward their educational goals. The office also plays a critical role in the recruitment mission of the College and dissemination of information to prospective students, their parents and the training and support extended to area high school counselors.
