What is Financial Aid? 

Financial aid helps students and their families pay for college expenses, both direct (charged to your college student account including tuition and fees) and indirect (including, but not limited to books, supplies, living expenses, and transportation to/from college). There are several types of financial aid including grants, scholarships, loans and work study.

  • Grants – generally no repayment necessary; based on need.
  • Scholarships – generally no repayment necessary; based on merit and/or need.
  • Loans – repayment is required; loan type is based on need. Regardless of need, all students are eligible for some type of federal student loan. 
  • Work Study –work for an hourly rate; based on need

Financial aid awards may include a combination of various types of aid.

 Should I apply for the FAFSA or WASFA?

There is no fee to apply. Submitting your FAFSA or WASFA is the first step in applying for financial aid and scholarships. It is highly recommended that you submit your FAFSA or WASFA as soon as possible after October 1 and no later than 6 weeks before you plan to begin at LCC.

I am a U.S. Citizen or a Permanent Resident of the U.S.
