Click on the LMC Student tab where you will see a box with the heading “Financial Aid” and three choices underneath:
Will give you information on any document requirements, your Satisfactory Academic Progress status, and allows you to see your academic history. Make sure you choose the correct academic year (usually the one on top).
If there are any documents listed under “Unsatisfied Requirements,” you should get those documents to the Financial Aid Office as soon as possible. If it is a document that LMC can provide you with, there will be a link to the document, so you can print the form, complete it, and return it to the LMC Financial Aid Office.
Satisfactory Academic Progress
This will show your most recent Satisfactory Academic Progress status. If you have any questions about your status, you should contact the financial aid office.
Financial Aid Status
This area will give you information on your financial aid cost of attendance, financial aid awards, financial account information.
Financial Aid Awards
If you have a financial aid award, it will say, “You have been awarded financial aid which totals (your aid award).” This is the total of all aid (including work study, scholarships, and loans). To find detailed information, click on the word “awarded.” This will break your financial aid out by fund for the entire academic year. To get your information by semester, click on “Account Summary By Semester” at the bottom of the screen.
Financial Account Information
To see information on your charges, you can click on “account summary”. This will show you tuition, fees, and any other charges that are on your student account. Your financial aid will not show up in this area until it has been paid to your account, which generally occurs several weeks into the semester.
