Each year, Lab provides financial assistance to help meet the needs of students and their families. Lab does not have a specific income cutoff for financial aid. Rather, the Financial Aid Committee examines a family’s entire financial picture, including income, expenses and other circumstances.
Financial Aid awards are not automatically renewed. Each year, families are required to re-apply for aid. Awards are recalculated annually based on the most recent financial data.
In cases of divorce or separation, both parents must submit all required forms.
