Scholarships & Discounts for Kellett School (Evening/Online) Students

Lakeland is committed to providing exceptional value at a manageable cost. That's why we offer scholarships and discounts to help make the cost of adult education more affordable.  

We also encourage all students applying for scholarships to submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or to contact the financial aid office

Are you a Lakeland graduate thinking about pursuing an advanced degree? There’s never been a better time to pursue additional education at your alma mater!

New master’s degree students who have completed their undergraduate degree from Lakeland will receive a Legacy Discount of 10 percent off each graduate class!

At Lakeland, we’re family, and we value our relationship with all our graduates, and it’s why we designed this program. The Legacy Discount is simply a way for us to reward you for being a member of the Lakeland family.

Our Buddy Scholarship rewards new Evening, Weekend & Online students who start an undergraduate or graduate program with a friend, colleague, family member or – their buddy – at the same time. Students who enroll in an eligible program with a friend, or group of friends, will each receive a one-time $500 scholarship for their first semester.
