Financial Aid Feature

What is Federal Work-Study?

WhatIsFWS.jpg

Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a type of financial aid that enables students to work at eligible part-time jobs on campus and earn regular paychecks to help offset education expenses.


At LCCC, there are many part-time student positions around campus. Some of them require FWS, and some do not. If you find yourself with time and interest in a part-time position on-campus, then your potential supervisor may check to see if you are FWS-eligible. This is not something that is checked or awarded unless you are actively seeking an on-campus position.


You can learn more about Federal Work-Study from StudentAid.gov

Student Loans at LCCC


Are you receiving student loans as part of your financial aid award at LCCC? Make sure you know some of the important, often-overlooked details about your loans:


  • Subsidized student loans = the loan does not accrue interest while you are in school
  • Unsubsidized student loans = the loan accrues interest while you are in school (and after)
  • First-time student loan borrowers will have a "30-Day Delay" on their student loans. These loans will not disburse to students' tuition balances until approximately 30 days after the semester has started (around the end of September).

Check your Self-Service app for more information about your financial aid.

If you have more questions about your aid, great resources for help include:

Confirm Your Information!


Now is a great time to update and confirm your contact and emergency information in the Self-Service app in your myLCCC account!


Keeping your information up-to-date helps LCCC know how to get ahold of you, send you important mail (such as refund checks!), or who to contact for you in case of an emergency.


It's easy:

  1. Log into myLCCC
  2. Go to the Self-Service app
  3. Click on your name at the top of the page and go to Contact Information
  4. Review your information - address, email address, and phone number. Edit or add information as needed, and then confirm! (Note that address changes will not show up immediately; they must be manually verified and will show up within a week of updating.)
  5. Click on your name at the top of the page again to go to Emergency Information.
  6. Add or confirm the name and contact methods for your emergency contact person.

FAFSA Night at LCCC


The 2021-2022 academic year may have just started...but on October 1 the 2022-2023 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) will open up!


If you plan to attend any college in Fall 2022, Spring 2023, or Summer 2023, you need to file a 2022-2023 FAFSA. Luckily, you don't have to do the FAFSA alone!


Join us for FAFSA Night to get assistance completing your 2022-2023 FAFSA!


When: Wednesday, Oct. 6, 4-7 p.m.

Where: Clay Pathfinder Building, room 208 (Cheyenne campus)

What: Help filing your 2022-2023 FAFSA, free snacks, and getting your questions answered!


Bring a copy of your 2020 tax return if possible; and your parent(s)' 2020 tax return if you are a dependent student

Enrollment Verification

Do you need proof of your enrollment and credits for insurance?

You may need to obtain an Enrollment Verification.

The easiest way to do this is to access a ready-to-print Enrollment Verification from the Self-Service app in your myLCCC account.

 

If that does not work for you, you can request one by email from the Student Hub (StudentHub@lccc.wy.edu) using your student email address.

Title IX Training

Start your Title IX Training early! 


LCCC students are required to take annual Title IX Training.


You can access the training in myLCCCYou will need to complete your training prior to registering for the spring semester. You can save your progress and complete one section at a time.


Help Keep Our Campus Safe!


Masks are strongly encouraged for LCCC students, visitors, and guests when social distancing is not possible.

Need to make schedule changes?


You may be able to add/drop classes in your Navigate app.


Before making schedule changes, it's always a good idea to talk to your academic advisor and the Student Hub, to discuss potential impacts to your academic progress and financial aid standing.


Newer students may even have an Advising Hold on their account - this will prevent you from adding/dropping classes in Navigate until you've talked to your academic advisor, to make sure you know how it may affect you. You can schedule an advising appointment in Navigate if needed.
