Lamar State College - Port Arthur Student Financial Aid

Student Financial Aid


The purpose of the Financial Aid Department is to provide financial aid to all eligible students using the guidelines of the U.S. Department of Education, the State of Texas and the policies of Lamar State College-Port Arthur. The Financial Aid Office provides personal advisement in all aspects of the financial aid process to assist students toward their educational goals. The office also plays a critical roll in the recruitment mission of the College and dissemination of information to prospective students, their parents and the training and support extended to area high school counselors.

IMPORTANT: MyLamarPA Computer Account

All students are required to maintain a MyLamarPA E-mail account. All students will be assigned an LSC-PA official E-mail address upon acceptance. Most of official communication from LSC-PA is conducted via E-mail. This includes information such as policy announcements, emergency notices, event notifications, financial aid information, tuition and fees, course availability/cancellation, course syllabi and requirements, and correspondence between faculty and students. LSC-PA recommends that all students check their E-mail at least once daily.

VERY IMPORTANT: You MUST be admitted to the college before you are assigned a MyLamarPA computer account in order to check for or accept your financial aid awards. Click on the "Am I admitted?" button to the right to check your admission status.

Constitution Day

The Congressional initiative designed to better inform the populous of our country's heritage has directed institutions receiving Federal Funds to implement an educational program on the Constitution. This educational program commemorates the signing of the Constitution on September 17, 1787. With this law in mind we would like to direct you to one of our links to a Constitution information website.

This program is authorized by Section 111 of Division J of Pub. L. 108-447, the "Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2005" Dec. 8, 2004; 118 Stat. 2809,3344-45(Section 111).

Texas Tuition Rebate Program

The purpose of this program is to provide a financial incentive for you to complete a bachelor's degree with as few courses outside the degree plan as possible. The program's goal is minimizing the number of courses you take saving money for you, your parents and the State of Texas.
