Complete Your FAFSA 2014-2015 & Summer 2014 Aid Forms
It is time to renew your FAFSA for the 2014-2015 academic year. Please go to the FAFSA website at www.fafsa.gov as soon as possible to ensure you are prepared for your Fall 2014-2015 tuition. The deadline to have all paperwork submitted to our office is June 30, 2014. Remember that May 1, 2014 is the deadline for Pennsylvania residents that are applying for PHEAA State Grants.
Summer 2014 Instructions-
The Summer 2014 Financial Aid Application form is now available. You can download and print at the bottom of our website: www.luzerne.edu/financialaid. You are also required to complete the 2013-2014 FAFSA if you have not already done so. We recommend you complete the 2014-2015 FAFSA as well.
IMPORTANT: If you are a currently enrolled student for the fall 2013 or spring 2014 semesters, Summer financial aid cannot be processed until academic progress has been reviewed (no exceptions). You may be required to make payment on Summer classes should your bill be due before aid can be processed. If you are aid eligible, you will be reimbursed up to the amount of aid eligibility. Please only complete the LCCC Internal Summer 2014 Financial Aid Application AFTER you are registered so we can process registered students in a timely fashion.
If you are a VISITING STUDENT (non-degree seeking at LCCC), you are not eligible for financial aid in any semester. This also includes Federal Direct Stafford and Federal Parent PLUS Loans since they are a form of financial aid. Your payment option besides cash, check, or credit card (if you are enrolled in at least 6 credits) is to apply for a Private/Alternative loan which is subject to credit worthiness. A list of private/alternative loans is available under the financial aid portion of the College's website under "types of aid" as "alternative loans."

Important Notice from the Financial Office to the Campus Community
Effective July 1, 2010
On March 25, 2010, the United States Congress passed the Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act (SAFRA). SAFRA eliminates the Federal Education Loan Program (FFELP) that LCCC has participated in for many years. The New Law mandates that all students and/or parents that previously borrowed through this FFELP program and wish to secure a Federal Stafford and/or Federal Parent PLUS loan must complete a NEW Master Promissory Note through the Federal Direct Loan Program (FDLP).
Luzerne County Community College decided to participate in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Program beginning July 1, 2010. The Direct Loan Program is where all loans are provided through the U.S. Department of Education and guaranteed by the federal government.
Please refer to the financial aid section of the website under Federal Direct Stafford and Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loan program for further instructions on how to apply and FAQ's regarding the Federal Direct Loan Program.
