• Financial Aid

    Take a closer look at tuition.

    LaGrange College is one of the most affordable private colleges in the Southeast. In fact, year after year, U.S. News & World Report has ranked us as a top 10 Regional College (South) and among that category's "Great Schools at a Great Price." Recognizing the major investment students and families make when choosing a private college, we offer a range of financial aid assistance. We'll work with you on an individual basis to make LaGrange College an affordable choice in the pursuit of your dreams.

  • LaGrange College awards over $23 million in total financial aid annually with more than 30 percent awarded from institutional funds.  We offer a variety of federal, state, institutional, and private need-based and non-need-based grants, scholarships, loans, and student employment programs to narrow the gap between what the student and his family can contribute and the actual cost of attending LaGrange College. In fact, nine out of ten LaGrange College students receive some form of financial assistance. 

  • LaGrange offers a broad range of financial aid programs to assist families in realizing their dreams of attending college, including the HOPE Scholarship and the HOPEMatch, a grant awarded to enrolling freshmen who graduate from high school as a HOPE Scholar or from an out-of-state high school with a 3.0 or better grade point average. Through HOPEMatch, LaGrange College will match your private college HOPE or Zell Miller Scholarship up to a maximum of $4,000 per year. Students awarded academic scholarships may receive the HOPEMatch or their academic award, whichever is greater.


    Federal financial aid and institutional funds are available to students who qualify, and Georgia residents who enroll as full-time students receive the Georgia Tuition Equalization Grant in the amount of $700 per year.

    Although many other programs are awarded based on financial need, there are non-need-based grants, scholarships, loans and student employment available.



  • Types of Aid

    Grants are generally awarded on the basis of financial need rather than merit and do not require repayment. Additional application materials may be required. Learn more >>

    Scholarships are often performance-based, in categories like academics and community service. Scholarships do not require repayment, but applications may have specific criteria and deadlines. Learn more >>

    Loans do require repayment but they can be a key option. The federal government offers a range of low-interest loans (with features like interest-only payments) to both students and parents. Some loans can be forgiven through service as a teacher or nurse. Learn more >>

    Work-study programs are offered by LaGrange College and the federal government. Typically, work-study dollars are earned by working 10-15 hours each week at jobs either on- or off- campus. You must complete the FAFSA to find out if you are eligible.

    Payment Plans allow families to create a customized payment schedule for tuition, room and board. Options include monthly increments and extended payments. An annual fee will be charged.
