Mid-July Financial Aid Check-In

Fall semester is approaching fast! Here's a quick check-in so you can make sure you are on track with your financial aid!

  1. Have you applied for financial aid? If not - do that as soon as you can! Start with the FAFSA then apply for LCCC Scholarships.
  2. Planning to use Hathaway? If it's your first time using Hathaway at LCCC (or you're coming back after an absence), make sure you have completed the LCCC Hathaway application. This must be done before the semester starts!
  3. 2022 High School Graduates: if your high school GPA was 3.0 or above, make sure you have applied for the LCCC Presidential or Deans Scholarship!
  4. Have you checked your financial aid status in your Self-Service app in your myLCCC accountThis is where you'll learn of any missing requirements, documents you need to submit, and accept or reject your awards so that you know how much aid you are receiving!

How Do I Get My Financial Aid?

Once you know what you are receiving for financial aid - the next question students usually ask is when!?

If you are receiving financial aid (meaning you have been offered and accepted aid), then you do not need to make any payment to LCCC before the semester begins.

If you're getting more financial aid than your tuition/fee charges, then you can "charge" your textbooks to the extra at the LCCC bookstore!

A few weeks into the semester is the First Disbursement Date. This is the first date that LCCC receives financial aid funds, and will apply the funds to your tuition/fee balance (as well as Res Hall/meal/book charges, if applicable).

The first disbursement date for Fall 2022 is September 6.

After the first disbursement date, students with aid left over will start to receive their refunds. This is any aid that was left after your financial aid was applied to your balance. The first Fall refunds will start to be issued on September 9.

Remember to check your student email and the Self-Service app in your myLCCC account for information or updates about your financial aid.

If you have questions, we are here to help!

Student ID Cards

Why get a Student ID?

Your LCCC Student ID Card identifies you as an LCCC student - and has your student ID number on it (which you'll need to have or know periodically!)

Plus, it serves as your library card, and for Cheyenne campus students, it's your building and room key if you will be living on-campus, and your meal plan card if you will be purchasing meals in the LCCC Dining Hall.

I'm new - how do I get a Student ID Card?

The fastest and easiest way to get a Student ID Card is to use our easy online process! Once you are registered for classes, use this form to submit your photo. Then we will either mail you your card, or you can come pick it up on-campus!

You can also walk-in at either the Cheyenne or Laramie Student Hub during their business hours to get your ID made, if you prefer.

I'm a continuing student - do I need to do anything to continue using my ID Card?

Your Student ID Card is valid for four years. So if you already have one, there's nothing you need to do! It still will work for everything you may need. Contact the Student Hub or use this form if you lost yours and need a replacement!
