Interdisciplinary Studies Degree Completion Program.
- Complete your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) for the appropriate year (July 1-June 30).
- If you had your Federal Student Aid (FSA) suspended due to not meeting satisfactory academic progress (SAP), you will need to submit an appeal along with the required supporting documentation. Remember that academic and financial suspensions are different. In accordance with FSA regulations, LHU’s financial aid office has the following minimum SAP requirements: GPA – 2.000 and Pace – 67%.
- Students with a previously unpaid balance will not be permitted to register for classes until the unpaid balance is paid in full.
- For students whose account was transferred to an outside collection agency, pre-payment of the first semester is required before being permitted to register for classes.
- Student Accounts will take into consideration any expected financial aid based on the current year FAFSA.
If you have attended any other colleges/universities since you left LHU, contact each institution and request that an official transcript be forwarded to the Registrar’s Office.
