Emergency Aid

If you have an unexpected financial emergency and need additional assistance beyond your financial aid award, we strongly encourage and welcome all LCCC students to connect with the Advocacy and Resource Center.

Email Scams – Offers of Financial Support

Please be aware of email scams that appear to come from a college's Financial Aid or other office. These messages may ask for personal information which is then used for fraudulent action and identity theft. Since you may receive these messages in addition to legitimate communications from LCCC to help you with access to financial support, make sure you are able to tell the difference between these scams and LCCC offers of support.
