Applying - Graduate

There is a path to affording a life-changing education.

Application Process

  • The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required if applying for federal, state and institutional financial aid programs. 
  • To begin, create a FSA ID. This is your electronic signature and allows you to sign forms. Keep this ID in a safe place as you’ll need it to complete your FAFSA each year.
  • Complete the FAFSA using Lipscomb University’s school code: 003486. Be sure to select the correct academic year FAFSA based on when you are planning to start.

Understanding Financial Need

To determine financial need, we calculate your need using this process:

Your SAR will report your Expected Family Contribution (EFC). Lipscomb University uses this to determine your financial aid awards. 

We are dedicated to consistently enrolling a diverse community of students, regardless of their financial capacities. An investment in Lipscomb is an investment in your future: that’s why we strive to ensure that costs are not a barrier for our students. Lipscomb is proud to be a top school for return on investment and has a below-average student debt at graduation. That's because financial aid and even scholarships and assistantships to some programs are available to students.
