Tuition & Financial Aid

Lehigh Carbon Community College administers various federal and state financial aid funds.  Grants which do not require repayment, as well as loans and student employment programs are available through the Office of Financial Aid. Financial Aid may only be used for educational purposes and to pay the cost of attending Lehigh Carbon Community College.  

Now is the time to apply for Financial Aid for the 2018-2019 academic year which covers classes starting in August 2018through August 2019.  Beginning on October 1, 2017, students are able to fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) for the 2018-2019 school year.  In addition, applicants will be able to retrieve their data directly from the IRS because the income information used will be from the 2016 tax year. Please file by Lehigh Carbon Community College’s recommended filing date of January 1, 2018  for attendance during the fall 2018 spring 2019and summer 2019 semesters. 
Lehigh Carbon Community College’s federal code is 006810.

  1. Students and/or parents should use the IRS data retrieval process when completing the income and asset information on the FAFSA. The IRS data retrieval process allows anyone with a completed and filed federal income tax return for 2016 to have their income tax information automatically transferred to their FAFSA form.
