Application Procedures

All students who receive federal and state aid at LBCC must be admitted to the college. (Refer to the How to Get Started - Admission section of the catalog for information about seeking degrees or certificates).

The first step in applying for federal and state aid at LBCC is to complete the Free Application for Federal Aid (FAFSA). Undocumented students including students with DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) status may apply with the Oregon Student Aid Application. The FAFSA/ORSSA may be available as early as October 1 of each year. You may apply for aid at any time throughout the year; however, financial aid funds are limited and may not be available for late submissions. LBCC uses the FAFSA to determine the type and amount of aid a student may receive. The use of this federally approved aid application assures every applicant fair and equitable treatment. LBCC’s financial aid process can be found at:

Students are strongly encouraged to visit LBCC's financial aid website for our Priority Deadline Dates. Read and follow the financial aid steps towards completion of your application for federal and state aid. Completing the FAFSA/ORSSA is just the first step in obtaining an award from LBCC. To avoid any delay in obtaining an award offer, stay in contact with the Financial Aid Office and respond to all communications for additional information from LBCC Financial Aid.

Once LBCC receives your FAFSA/ORSSA you will be notified by the financial aid office of any other outstanding requirements. Examples of requirements may be IRS tax return transcripts, copies of all W-2's for the year, or proof of identity. You will be notified via your LBCC email of any outstanding document requirements. If you have not been assigned your LBCC email (not admitted), we will correspond with you via the email you provided on the FAFSA. You may track your application progress through your WebRunner student account.
