Financial Aid & Payments Calendar
Ways to Cover Education Costs
There are four types of types of financial aid and we recommend that all students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at fafsa.gov. The FAFSA determines eligibility for need-based aid. The deadline for maximum consideration for the state is March 1; be sure to add LCC’s school code 002278.
Scholarship eligibility varies based on financial need, academic merit, field of study, talent, athletic participation, etc. Students can apply for scholarships at LCC, the State of Michigan, community organizations, and their employer. For the most part, these funds do not need to be repaid.
Loans are available through the federal government. Students also have the option of taking out loans from a private lender. These funds must be repaid.
Grants are funds to help cover educational costs and do not need to be repaid. These funds are offered by the federal government, state of Michigan, and LCC.
Federal Work-Study is a need-based federal program that provides students with employment opportunities, both on- and off-campus, to assist with educational expenses. Students must meet the basic eligibility requirements to receive these funds.
Here you can find information on Basic Eligibility Requirements, Consortium Agreements, Enrollment Level Definitions and more.
