  1. APPLY



Follow the link below and create a new LHSA portal account to register your student. Upon completing the application, you will be prompted to pay the non-refundable registration fee based on the schedule below.

By creating an account and completing your application, your new username and password provide you access to the LHSA portal (which will later be used to pay tuition).
