Lawrence Tech hosts Financial Aid Night

Release Date: September 1, 2016

Students and their families with questions on how to pay for college can find answers at Financial Aid Night at Lawrence Technological University.

The event will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25 at the Mary E. Marburger Science and Engineering Auditorium inside LTU’s Science Building. Free parking is available off the southbound Northwestern Highway service drive. For more information, visit

The event will feature an overview of financial aid and scholarship eligibility and requirements. Attendees will learn more about scholarships; private, state, and federal programs; and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

According to Susie Poli-Smith, Lawrence Tech director of financial aid, big changes are afoot this fall in financial aid applications:

  • Students will be able to submit a FAFSA earlier. Students will be able to file a 2017–18 FAFSA as early as Oct. 1, 2016, rather than beginning on Jan. 1, 2017. The earlier submission date will be a permanent change, enabling students to complete and submit a FAFSA as early as Oct. 1 every year.
  • Students will use earlier income information. Beginning with the 2017–18 FAFSA, students will be required to report income information from an earlier tax year. For example, on the 2017–18 FAFSA, students (and parents, as appropriate) will report their 2015 income information, rather than their 2016 income information

Space is limited for this event. For information and to register by Oct. 21, call (800) CALL-LTU (225-5588), email or visit
