Students can apply for the Returning Adult Scholarship through the Office for Non-Traditional Student Programs. This scholarship is awarded to part-time or full-time adult undergraduate students (25 years or older) who are newly enrolled at LIU Post as matriculated freshman or transfer students. The award is based on scholastic achievement, evidence of academic potential, and availability of funds. These awards range from $1,000 per semester for part-time students and $1,500 for full-time students.

The Returning Adult Scholarship is renewable for up to two years. In addition to completing the application form and submitting an essay, a student must submit a copy of his or her previous year’s federal income tax return (Form 1040) and file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
