The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how we interact, where we go, and even how we learn. For many, it also has created additional financial hardships.
Lake Michigan College remains committed to helping you face these challenges, which is why we are excited to offer additional federal grant funding to current students with expenses related to disruptions in their education due to COVID-19.
Expenses such as course materials and technology for remote learning as well as food, housing, childcare, healthcare and more, may qualify you for a CARES Grant.
These funds are available for expenses from March 13, when LMC’s campuses closed for the spring semester. Students may include anticipated expenses, such as monthly internet access for example, but under federal guidelines, these funds cannot be used to cover outstanding balances on a student account.
To be eligible for the CARES Grant, students must also fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). International students and undocumented immigrants are not eligible for this assistance under federal guidelines. LMC is authorized to use these new funds through March 2021, or until they have been exhausted.
Mandatory reporting for CARES Act funding can be found here.
Applications will be reviewed as they are received. Students will be notified following the review of their application. If you have questions about your eligibility for the CARES Grants, review the FAQ. For questions or more information, email the Financial Aid Office.
Whether you are eligible for this particular grant or not, there are still a number of other resources available to you.
If you are struggling, please reach out to us. Your LMC family is here to help.
