Financial Aid Requirements for LTCC

2. Apply for federal financial aid. Fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on the U.S. Department of Education's web site at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. You (and a parent if you are a dependent student) will need to request a Personal Identification Number (PIN) from the Department of Education. You do this by going to the www.pin.ed.gov web site. You should fill the FAFSA out by March 1st of each year. The FAFSA on the Web Worksheet may be obtained on the Web at www.fafsa.gov. There is no charge to apply for federal financial aid. If you have any questions concerning applying for federal or state financial aid please call us at 417-532-5494.
Note 1: This application is used to determine your eligibility for the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Direct Loans, and many Missouri funded financial aid programs. You must complete the FAFSA each year.
Note 2: Make sure you identify LTCC as one of the schools you want to receive your financial aid application. You can use our school code of 030424.
Note 3: A+ students, you must fill out a FAFSA each school year. No A+ funds can be disbursed until the financial aid office has a valid Student Aid Report on file. So file early and yearly to ensure you can use A+ funds to help pay your tuition and fees.
3. You are required to have a high school diploma or a GED certificate to enroll and attend classes at LTCC.
4. To receive federal financial aid, you must be a degree/certificate seeking student at LTCC.
5. You'll receive your Student Aid Report (SAR) about two weeks from the time you submit the FAFSA on the web. If you have not received your SAR within this timeframe you may call the Federal Student Aid Center at 1-800-4FEDAID to check the status of your application or check the FAFSA web site.
6. Please keep in mind LTCC has deadlines for each program that a student must meet in order to use their possible financial aid to prepay tuition and fees. Normally, this means your financial aid file must be completed approximately six weeks before the start of the program/semester. See the Financial Aid Office for exact dates.
7. When the Financial Aid Office receives your SAR from the federal processor you will receive either a financial aid award letter notification or a missing document letter notification.
8. If selected for verification you must provide requested documentation to the LTCC Financial Aid Office before any aid eligibility can be determined. Common documents needed to verify your financial aid application information are federal tax return transcript, all W-2s, child support received/paid documents, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program documents, and a LTCC verification worksheet (provided by the Financial Aid Office). This is another reason you should file early for financial aid.
Note: The student must complete their financial aid file before they can receive any Title IV funds.
9. Once your financial aid file is completed and verified, you will be notified you Award Letter has been completed and ready for your signature. The Award Letter will show what type of aid you are eligible for and the amounts you would receive as a full-time student. You must read and acknowledge the financial aid terms and conditions before receiving your aid.
10. If you are eligible for a loan and decide you want a Federal Direct Student Loan, please go to www.student loans.gov to complete the master promissory note (MPN) and complete student loan entrance counseling. Additionally, you will need to accept the loans you wish to receive. Before accepting the loan it is recommended you talk to one of our financial aid advisors to determine the amount of funds you will need during this academic year and to help clarify repayment responsibilities on your student loans.
Note: A student must be enrolled at least half time to be eligible for a student loan. You must also meet academic progress and GPA standards. See the policies section located on the web site for a complete explanation of these standards.
11. Your financial aid will be applied to your account and any outstanding tuition, fees, and other charges on your account will be deducted.
12. Prior to the disbursement date a Financial Aid Advisor will verify your enrollment and attendance in those classes. This is to ensure the amount of financial aid originally awarded is still a valid amount.
13. If you have excess financial aid a check will be disbursed to you approximately eight to ten weeks into the semester. The actual dates will be posted in the Financial Aid office.
Note: Pell and loan funds are electronically sent to the school and placed into the student's account. These funds will be placed onto the student's account within three days of the school receiving the funds. The credit balance checks will be disbursed within three days of LTCC receiving the money and placing it on your account.
14. A student must apply for financial aid each school year. Financial aid received in one year is not automatically renewable for the next.
Note: The award of financial aid is based on you attending classes through the completion of each semester. When aid is awarded for a semester and you stop attending you will most likely have to repay up to 100% of your financial aid and tuition and fees to the U.S. Department of Education and/or LTCC. Please notify a Financial Aid advisor before you withdraw from your classes.
