The Office of Student Financial Services at Lawson State Community College coordinates all financial assistance (federal, state, institutional, and private) offered to students. Our fundamental purpose is to make a college education possible to those who would otherwise be unable to have one. Financial Aid is financial assistance that helps a student lessen the difference between what he/she can afford to pay and the actual cost of attendance. Financial assistance consists of grants, employment, scholarships or a combination of any of these forms of assistance. Students seeking federal financial assistance, as well as applying for many scholarships are required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) .
NOTE: Lawson State would like to thank and credit the support of Troy University for its assistance and cooperation in the development of the information contained in the Financial Aid section of this website.
