1. What is a Financial Aid bookstore voucher?
A Financial Aid bookstore voucher is created from any excess financial aid on the student’s account after the payment of tuition and fees. It can be used at the LCCC bookstores to purchase books, course materials, and other essential classroom supplies as listed on the bookstore voucher.
2. How do I access a Financial Aid bookstore voucher?
The Office of Financial Aid will email all students WHEN and IF they become eligible to receive a Financial Aid bookstore voucher. You can access your voucher by going to:
• Login to myLCCC from LCCC's home page (www.lccc.edu)
• Look for "My Finances" in the LaunchPad on the left side of the screen and click
• Locate "Student E-bill Statement" and click
• Click on the "Bookstore Voucher" tab (This tab is available only IF you are eligible to receive a bookstore voucher. A bookstore voucher comes from any excess financial aid on your account. If you have not yet been awarded financial aid; have not fully accepted your financial aid; or do not have more financial aid than the cost of tuition and fees; then you will not have a bookstore voucher.)
• Print the bookstore voucher and take it with you to the bookstore in order to purchase your books.
3. When are vouchers available?
Vouchers are generally available 10 business days before the start of classes. Look for an email to your LCCC email address, so you know when a voucher is available for that semester. New bookstore vouchers are generated every semester that a student is eligible for financial aid and has excess funds available after the payment of tuition and fees.
4. What if I don’t see a voucher to print even though I heard other students have received theirs?
You may need to complete a requirement or provide additional information to the Office of Financial Aid in order to receive a bookstore voucher. Please check your portal for any outstanding requirements or contact the Office of Financial Aid at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-799-1133.
5. What if I don’t have a printer at home to print my voucher?
You can print a bookstore voucher right at the LCCC bookstores. The LCCC bookstores also recommend bringing a copy of your class schedule to the bookstore since books are section specific, but you can also print schedule copies at the bookstore.
6. Why do bookstore vouchers expire?
Financial Aid bookstore vouchers expire immediately before the disbursement date so that financial aid refunds can be accurately calculated and prepared for release.
