Can I get Financial Aid?
Most students taking 6 credits or more qualify for some type of financial assistance.  Make sure you have completed the FAFSA to learn if you are eligible for federal or state financial aid. Please visit the LCCC Financial Aid website for detailed information and instructions to apply for financial aid.

Non-citizens must have an "eligible noncitizen" status to qualify for financial aid, such as permanent resident or asylum.  Applicants with a bachelor's degree from outside the U.S. are not eligible for federal or state grants.  However, students may still qualify for loans or for one of the ESL scholarships below.

LCCC Scholarships
In addition to financial aid, two scholarships are available through the ESL department, the Century Fund Scholarship (Allentown residents only) and the Latino Leadership Alliance Scholarship (need-based, deadline April 1.) You can complete and print the forms electronically or you can ask for an application at any LCCC location.

National Scholarships
Below are scholarships available for full-time Hispanic students, including immigrants, DACA, and undocumented students.  These scholarships are not related to LCCC. Read each website for more information.
