For select programs, the Center will match financial assistance given to an individual student by a parish or institution (or combined assistance from more than one parish, group, or institution). No Tuition Assistance Application is necessary, however students must request and submit a completed LMU Match form indicating the sponsoring parish(s) or institution(s). Download forms below.

Students must remain in good academic standing in order to receive the LMU Match (additional requirements by program, if any, will be outlined on the LMU Match forms). Please note that the LMU Match is a match-only of institutional support for a student, and does not prevent the student from also applying for general Tuition Assistance.


  • When a student in this program is sponsored by a parish or a Church group or institution (or receives a combined sponsorship from more than one parish, group or institution), LMU will match that sponsorship up to $500 for PMAX 800.01.
