Student Loan Repayment to Resume

Congress recently passed a law preventing further extensions of the Federal Student Loan Payment Pause. Student loan interest will resume starting on September 1, 2023, and payments will be due starting in October.  The Department of Education will notify borrowers well before their payments are set to restart.

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.

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).

University Students Attending LCCC

We can streamline the process and help you get started. 

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 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.

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.
