Financial Aid Feature

2022-2023 FAFSA Available Now!

The 2022-2023 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is available NOW at www.fafsa.gov.

You will need to complete this FAFSA if you are attending school during the 2022-2023 academic year: Fall 2022, Spring 2023, or Summer 2023.

This FAFSA will require your 2020 tax information.

It may seem early, but it never hurts to start planning ahead for next year and getting things done early!

Need help filing your FAFSA? No problem! It can seem complicated. We are here to help! The LCCC Student Hub and the Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) are great resources that can help answer your FAFSA questions.

Check out FAFSA resources here!


Pro Tip: The 2021-2022 FAFSA is used for financial aid for Spring 2022 - if you have financial aid for this semester, then you have probably already done the 2021-2022 FAFSA!

Registration Tip: Know Your Section Numbers

Do you know the difference between course numbers and section numbers?

A department/course number identifies the course content and competencies.

A section number distinguishes the actual instance of the class, because there are usually multiple options for class days, times, or modalities (i.e., whether the class is online or in-person).

For example, if you are registered for ENGL 1010 105:

  • ENGL 1010 is the department/course number which determines the actual class content and competencies.
  • 105 is the section number which indicates your specific class day, time, instructor, dates, and modality.

You will register for a specific section of each of your courses, and it is helpful for you to know what sections you are in.

Section numbers can even be helpful to you in determining what courses you want to take – maybe you are looking for all online courses, needing a late-starting class, or wanting to take some of the new HyFlex format courses.

Here’s a quick guide to some of LCCC’s section numbering:

  • 100-199: Cheyenne campus, full-semester, daytime sections
  • 200-219: Cheyenne campus, full-semester, evening sections
  • 260-279 and 340-349: HyFlex offerings
  • 300-399: Laramie Campus sections
  • 500-519: Online Anytime (Asynchronous)
  • 520-539: Online on a Schedule (Synchronous)
  • 540-569: Hybrid (Part Online, Part In-Person)

If you show up to class on the first day and there’s a sign on the door about a room or date change, pay attention to the section number on the sign, and know your own section numbers (they show up on your schedule in Navigate) so you can keep track of your specific classes!

HyFlex: Maximum Flexibility For How You Learn!


HyFlex is a new option for how students take college courses with ultimate flexibility and options for YOU, the student!

A HyFlex course is a single class taught with three options for you to learn:

  • Face-to-Face
  • Online on a Schedule (Synchronous)
  • Online Anytime (Asynchronous)

All three options are taught at the same time. The student chooses from day-to-day and week-to-week how to engage in the course – all options are available to all students in the course. Assignments and competencies are assessed under the same expectations, and all students have equal access to all required materials (such as lab materials).

There are limited options of HyFlex classes for Spring 2022. These courses have section numbers between 260-279 or 340-349. If a course you need is offered as HyFlex, you can try it out and see if this new flexible class option will work for you!

Title IX Training

Be sure to complete your Title IX Training soon! You can access the training by logging into your myLCCC account and clicking on the Title IX Training icon. If you have not completed your training by October 18, you will have a hold placed on your account that will prevent you from registering.
