Where will I get a form to apply for federal and state programs?
The form you need to complete is called the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and it can be completed online. To apply online, you must first be assigned a Personal Identification Number (PIN) from the U.S. Department of Education. You may apply for a PIN number at www.pin.ed.gov. Filing begins in October before to the academic year begins.
What if my taxes are not completed by the college’s deadline to apply for aid?
Most schools will permit you to use an estimate to file the FAFSA. However, you will have to provide completed federal income tax information before actual awards will be made.
I don’t know which college I’m going to attend.
All schools that you list on the FAFSA will receive an Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR).
How much time elapses before I am notified of the amount of financial aid that I may receive?
LCU receives notification of your FAFSA 48 hours after you submit it. We will send out an award letter to admitted students as soon as possible. If you have filed and haven’t heard from us within a week, please contact the enrollment office, and they’ll get you the appropriate information.
Since I applied for aid I (or my spouse) got a new job. We aren’t going to earn as much money from the new job as we did from the previous job. Can I receive more financial aid?
Contact the financial aid office. The financial aid administrator will want to review your situation and can then make an individual decision regarding your financial aid award.
