LMU Extension is committed to making continuing education affordable. Thanks to the generosity of our benefactors, and the community, we have scholarship and tuition assistance opportunities available to the general public for selected programs. Please note that University Financial Aid, and most federal and state financial assistance, are not available for continuing education and non-degree programs. 

Government Assistance

Prospective WIOA participants must visit a WorkSource center to find out if they are eligible to receive WIOA grant funding. Prospective students who are good candidates for the program will meet with a WIOA Counselor who will help guide them through the WIOA process. Qualifying participants will research approved training providers and programs to determine which is the best fit for their needs. LMU Extension is listed locally with the Intrastate Training Resources and Information Network (I-Train):

  • Vendor Name: LMU Extension
  • Vendor Number: 0086022
  • State Provider ID: 2480

Alcohol and Drug Counseling Scholarship

 Due to the generosity of University benefactors, LMU Extension is able to award several partial-merit and need-based scholarships to qualified students annually. 

Third-Party Sponsorship

Many companies, professional organizations offer their own tuition assistance for employees enrolling in professional and continuing education programs.   Some individuals have insurance policies that will pay for retraining.  Sometimes friends and family members may wish to set up a gift account in a student's name to help defray the cost of tuition.  To obtain information and/or make arrangements to have your tuition paid by a third party, be sure to contact LMU Extension prior to enrollment.
