Is it true that students who benefit from outside help may not apply for financial aid?

It’s not true. Outside help does not preclude a deserving student from getting financial aid from LAU. However, outside help should be declared to LAU and the total aid (from all sources) should never exceed overall tuition plus certain charges.

If my brother or sister had, or has, financial aid at LAU, does that mean I will be automatically entitled as well?
