2020-2021 Accelerated Undergraduate Student Handbook

Financial Aid

Preparing for a college education requires a great deal of planning. Our Financial Aid Office can help you understand all possible financial aid resources, including the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, Federal Grants, Federal Loans, State Grants, LBC | Capital Scholarships, Vocational Rehabilitation, and Employee Reimbursement Programs. Please visit the Tuition & Financial Aid for Accelerated Undergraduate webpage for the most up-to-date information or contact the Financial Aid Office at financialaid@lbc.edu.

Assistance in the financial aid application process is available by contacting your advisor or the LBC | Capital Solution Center (solutions@lbc.edu). The Solution Center is available to answer your questions and to help estimate your eligibility for financial assistance. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. or by special appointment.

So that your financial aid eligibility may be determined in a timely manner, please contact the Financial Aid Office four to six weeks prior to the beginning of your first class.

Federal Aid cannot be applied to your account until you have started your second class.

Pennsylvania residents must take at least three classes in a row in order to qualify for PA State Grant awards. Grants are awarded by PHEAA to on-time recipients at the half-time rate. PHEAA grants are not awarded to online students. If you qualify, your grant will not be credited to your account until you are enrolled in the third class.

If your financial aid awards exceed your school bill, you may request a refund from the Business Office. Checks are cut once a week. If your aid arrives after the deadline for that week’s check run, your check will be cut the following week.

NOTE: Refunds will not be processed until all financial aid has been updated to your account.
