Cost of Attendance



Cost of attendance is an estimate of the total expenses for a student attending Louisiana State University Eunice. The total figure includes tuition and fees, room and board, books, transportation, and miscellaneous expenses. LSU Eunice Financial Aid Office uses the cost of attendance when calculating aid eligibility. Students and parents should use the cost of attendance to build a budget for the academic year and determine how much aid the student will need.

HARDSHIP WAIVERS



LSU Eunice, along with other state colleges and universities, was authorized by the Louisiana Legislature to raise tuition to offset the rising costs of post-secondary education. As directed by the Legislature, LSU Eunice will consider appeals for waiver of payment of the fee increase for students who meet the following criteria:

  1. Louisiana resident
  2. Full-time student (12 or more hours)
  3. Must have applied for, and be deemed eligible to receive federal financial aid (i.e. grants, loans, etc).
  4. Total cost of tuition, fees, books, and supplies exceeds the total amount received in grants, student loans, scholarships and other types of financial assistance (i.e. VA, Acadiana Works, etc).
  5. The waiver cannot be used in connection with other scholarships that exempt the same fees.
  6. Students must also be maintaining satisfactory progress based on LSU Eunice scholastic regulations.

You may apply for the waiver if you meet all of the above criteria and have special circumstances. Special Circumstances are defined as extreme condition(s) which exist that may warrant re-evaluation of a student's financial aid file. The circumstances must be different from what has already been reported on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Applications for waiver of tuition increase are available in the LSU Eunice Financial Aid Office. Please contact Director of Financial Aid in order to file an application for a waiver.  Deadline for applications is the last day of late registration of each semester/session. No application can be accepted after the deadline. You are expected to make arrangements to pay your fees until your appeal can be considered. If the appeal is approved, your fee increase payment will be returned to you or your account will be credited.
