Financial Aid
Receiving Your Financial Aid

Once your financial aid is finalized, your financial aid will be credited to your LMC student account and first be applied toward tuition and fees. If your Pell grant award exceeds your tuition and fees, you will be issued a Bookstore Credit for your remaining financial aid, up to a maximum of $800. Only the amount you actually buy in books and supplies will be charged and paid by your financial aid funds.

If you have funds left after paying for tuition, fees, and books, you will be issued a check for the remaining balance. Please note, not all funds can be used to purchase books. Pell Grants and Direct Loans, which are the most commonly received types of aid can be used for book purchases. However, other types of aid like TIP cannot be used for this purpose.


  Bookstore Credit Dates: Remaining Balance Checks Sent:
Fall 2013 August 12 – September 11, 2013 October 18, 2013
Spring 2014 January 2 - January 27, 2014 February 28, 2014
Summer 2014 Will be published after Summer calendar is finalized. Aid is paid based on start date of classes.

Please note: Your Pell Grants and Direct Loans will not be disbursed until the classes you have enrolled for have begun and we have verified your attendance in your classes.
