If you haven't considered financial aid because you think you won't qualify, you should take another look. Financial aid eligibility is based on need, which is the cost of attending college minus what you and your family are expected to contribute. Nearly half of Lake Michigan College students receive some form of financial aid.
Financial aid is designed to supplement, not replace, a family's resources. All colleges expect student and families to contribute as much as possible toward college costs.
Many factors are considered in calculating financial aid eligibility including annual income, assets, expenses, and the number of family members, as well as how many of them are attending college. These factors are combined into a formula set by the federal government to determine how much you and your family are expected to pay toward your college expense.
New Financial Aid Notification Process
Starting with the 2012-13 academic year, the Financial Aid office will communicate with returning student through their assigned LMC email accounts. If you receive financial aid, check your LMC email account often. This is how you will find out about needed documents and updates on your financial aid status. Questions about process? Contact the Financial Aid office at email@example.com or by calling (269) 927-8112.
