We are committed to helping motivated students find the resources they need to reach their educational goals and realize their dreams.
Lamar University’s financial advisors work with you to identify all possible resources to fund your education and extend the value of your investment in your degree. We also offer flexible payment options for students who may not qualify for student financing.
MyLamar, our student portal, provides access for payment, viewing emails, unofficial transcripts and more. To contact the Lamar Financial Aid office, please email us at [email protected].

Federal Financial Aid
Students who wish to apply for financial aid need to begin the process as soon as possible. All students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Lamar University’s Federal School Code is 003581. Students will be notified through their myLamar email account when additional documentation is required or when awarded.
For help filling out financial aid paperwork, visit the Lamar University Financial Aid Web site and follow the instructions.
Paperwork must be completed and turned into the office at least 3 weeks prior to the start of your course. This will allow us time to process your aid onto your account. Students whose paperwork is not completed 3 weeks before the start date of their course may need to make arrangements other than financial aid to pay for the course or risk being dropped. This does not mean that you will not get financial assistance, it just means that financial aid may not have enough time to apply financial aid to your account for the payment due date of your class, and you will be dropped.
Students beginning a program with 5 week classes in Fall III, Spring III or Summer II will not be eligible for Financial Aid in their beginning session. Students who only have one course left in a semester will not be eligible for Financial Aid for their last course.
Third Party Billing
If you have qualified for third party tuition reimbursement you must pay the tuition as enrolled and follow up with the necessary paperwork. For more information, please email Finance at [email protected] with “Third Party Billing” in the subject line to properly identify your request.
A student may recover all tuition for the current course when proper documentation is received by the third day of the current course. Future courses that have been pre-paid will be refunded 100% less application fees. For additional assistance please email [email protected].
