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. By completing the Student Needs Assessment on the ARC website, LCCC can identify the funds and resources that will assist you in starting, continuing, or returning to college.
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. Learn more about how to identify a legitimate offer of support.
Financial aid and scholarships at LCCC are administered by the Student Financial Aid Office. For tuition and fees, billing, and student account information, please visit Student Accounts (ie. Bursar’s Office).

Food Assistance – SNAP Benefits
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provides nutrition benefits to supplement the food budget of needy families so they can purchase healthy food and move towards self-sufficiency.
Eligibility requirements for these benefits have been temporarily expanded to include students enrolled at least half-time in an institution of higher education. Find out if you meet the new criteria to receive SNAP benefits.
University Students Attending LCCC
Always Check Your MyCampus Account
The Department of Education often requires additional documentation from some students. All requests will be shown on your “To Do” list. It is very important that you continue to check your MyCampus and LCCC email accounts often – throughout the year – for information and instructions.
Computer Purchases with Financial Aid
If you need to purchase a computer, you may be able to use financial aid. Please reach out to Student Financial Aid at firstname.lastname@example.org or via Live Chat for a review of your current financial aid availability. You may need to request a federal student loan to access funds for your computer purchase. If you have used all of your financial aid eligibility for the year, your Student Financial Aid representative will advise you to complete a Cost of Attendance Increase Request Form. Student Financial Aid will make a connection to additional resources on campus if a student’s eligibility for financial aid cannot be used for the purchase of a laptop. It is LCCC’s commitment that any student who needs access to technology during this time can receive assistance. Before you request a Cost of Attendance increase through Student Financial Aid, please complete the ARC’s Self-Assessment Form, as federal funds may be available to you for these types of purchases.
Financial Aid-Related Scams Using COVID to Target Students
Scammers are taking advantage of the ongoing pandemic in attempts to obtain students’ financial and personal information, in some instances posing as financial aid offices. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issued a warning notifying students that suspicious emails claiming to be from the “Financial Department” at their respective institutions are advertising how to receive the economic stimulus check.
