Your initial award is based on the information that we currently have in our system. If the Admissions Office has not received ALL official transcripts, your financial aid may have an incorrect loan amount awarded and any institutional funds from Lipscomb may be incomplete. Your final award will be based on ALL hours earned until you begin classes at Lipscomb. If we receive additional information, your award could change. We recommend you view your award and bill periodically through your myLipscomb account.
