Financial Aid

Assisting Students in receiving a college education

About Financial Aid

  • What is financial aid?

    Student financial aid programs were created to assist students in paying for their college education. Funding for these programs comes from a variety of sources including the United States Department of Education, the State of California and several other private sources. Federal, State and private funds awarded to students can be used to pay for fees, books, supplies, room/board and transportation costs. Although Financial Aid is generally provided to assist with the costs of attending college, it is not intended in any way to supplement a students income or the parents ability to pay for their child's college cost.

  • How do I apply for financial aid?

    Every student should fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as early as possible.  Beginning October 1st of each academic year, the FAFSA for the next academic year is released.  The application can be completed online at FAFSA on the web.

    For example:

    • If you are attending college between Aug 2021 - July 2022, you would complete the 2021-2022 FAFSA.
    • If you plan on attending college between Aug 2022 - July 2023, you would complete the 2022-2023 FAFSA  released on October 1, 2021.

    You will need to renew your FAFSA each academic year  you intend to enroll.

    We recommend having the following items on hand when completing the FAFSA:

    • Prior prior years (PPY) tax returns and W2 forms (yours and your parents' if you are under 24).  For example, if you are completing the 2021-2022 FAFSA, you will need your 2019 tax information.
    • Your social security number
    • Your alien registration number (if applicable)
    • A Federal Student AID (FSA) ID (student and parent if you are a dependent student)
    • LMC School Code: 010340

    Within 2 weeks, of successfully completing and submitting your FAFSA, LMC will import and begin processing your FAFSA.  You will receive an email notification advising you that the Financial Aid Office has received your FAFSA and to view your missing information checklist.

  • How are funds disbursed?

    LMC partners with BankMobile Disbursement to deliver financial aid to students.
