Announcing Additional Assistance for Food and Internet
Eligible students should have received an email from LCC informing them of possible assistance with groceries and internet service. LCC is spreading the word about these new programs but is not able to answer your eligibility questions.
If you have questions or want to apply for the assistance for groceries, please refer to the State of Michigan's MIBridges website. You may be required to provide documentation of eligibility by printing and submitting your Student Aid Report from the FAFSA website or provide the letter that you received in March from the U.S. Department of Education. If you currently receive assistance through the State of Michigan, please contact your case manager to determine if your benefits have increased due to this new program.
If you have questions or want to apply for the internet assistance, access fcc.gov/broadbandbenefit.

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 basic eligibility requirements to receive these funds.
Here you can find information on Basic Eligibility Requirements, Consortium Agreements, Enrollment Level Definitions and more.
