Awarding Process for New Students and Transfer Students
All new students who have a complete, current FAFSA on file and are accepted to Lock Haven University (LHU) will be reviewed by the Office of Financial Aid to determine financial aid eligibility. An award letter, that summarizes the aid, will be sent to the permanent address on file beginning in late March. The financial aid award letter information can also be viewed on the myHaven portal under Financial Aid.
Please note that all new LHU students who intend to take the Direct Stafford Loans, if awarded, must complete entrance counseling and a Master Promissory Note at http://studentloans.gov/
Awarding Process for Returning Students
Before financial aid is awarded, the Financial Aid Office must complete the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) review for each enrolled student after each semester’s grades have been posted. For more information about this review, please see the information in the Satisfactory Academic Progress tab.
Once the SAP review is complete, we will determine the financial aid eligibility for all students who have a current, complete FAFSA on file, are registered for the upcoming semester, and have completed Federal Verification, if selected. An award letter, that summarizes the aid for fall and spring semesters, will be sent to the permanent address on file in mid-June. It will also be viewable on the myHaven portal under Financial Aid. Students who start their enrollment with LHU in the spring semester and have a current FAFSA on file, should receive an award letter in late November.
