2Wait for an e-mail notification from LBCC, which will indicate we have received your FAFSA/ORSAA. It can take up to two weeks for us to receive it.
3 Login to your WebRunner account (instructions in e-mail) and view your individual outstanding requirements. Note: You must be admitted to LBCC and be making satisfactory academic progress to proceed in the financial aid process.
4 Turn in your required documents and you will be placed in line to be reviewed and awarded. This waiting period can take eight to ten weeks, or even longer during busy times of the year. Note: If your file was not selected for verification, your waiting time will be reduced.
5 An advisor will review your file. You may be asked to submit additional documentation, meet with an advisor, or clarify certain information. If necessary, the financial aid advisor will make corrections to your FAFSA information. It can take up to two weeks to get those corrections back from the federal government.
Important tip: To assure your file is reviewed in time for your upcoming term, turn in your required documents before the priority deadline date and respond promptly to any additional requests we may have.
6You will be notified via e-mail if/when you have been awarded financial aid. You can view your award or check the application status in your WebRunner account. If you have questions or special circumstances, you may meet with a financial aid advisor during an available drop-in time.
