About Long Island University
The largest campus of the Long Island University system, the C.W. Post campus was founded on the remains of a private Long Island estate in 1954, and has become a hub for learning for about 10,600 undergraduate students. Originally founded to provide an “effective and moderately priced education” to people from “all walks of live,” LIU continues to uphold that mission, from their undergraduate programs to their well-regarded continuing education and lifelong learning programs. With 307 acres on Long Island, the C.W. Post campus of LIU is the place to be, and as it’s only 45 minutes by train to New York City, there’s always something to do.
Long Island, with its proximity to New York City, isn’t exactly a cheap place to live, especially as a college student. If you’re receiving Long Island University financial aid, it’s especially important to keep an eye on your spending, so you don’t burn through your grant money or student loan by buying pizzas or on trips into Manhattan. We want you to have fun and enjoy your college experience, but you don’t need to shell out cash like a high roller to do that. Be financially smart while in college, and you’ll be way happier after you graduate.
Applying for Long Island University Financial Aid
Long Island University only requires its applicants to submit the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). That’s pretty awesome: it’s a relatively easy form to fill out, and if you need help, we have guides on how to take it down in our resource center. If we can’t entirely help you, though, contact your aid counselor at the LIU financial aid office. Once you have your FAFSA in, you’re all set in terms of the application process, and you’ll receive an aid package with your next tuition bill for LIU.
Long Island University Student Loans
Loans, grants, scholarships, and work-study programs are the four staples of financial aid packages wherever, and that’s what you’ll find at LIU. Many students will be satisfied with their aid package that includes federal student loans, but for some, their Long Island University financial aid packages won’t be enough. If your LIU financial aid package isn’t enough to cover the cost of attendance, consider a private student loan. To apply for a private student loan, use our student loan comparison tool; it’ll help you find the loan that’s best for you, and you can apply for the best-fit loan to cover your costs at LIU.
