Federal Pell Grant
After completing and submitting a Free Application for Federal Student Aid, students will receive a Student Aid Report, (SAR), with an official expected family contribution (EFC) number. This number will determine eligibility for a Federal Pell Grant. Federal Pell Grant amounts are prorated based on the enrollment status of each student per semester. Students may only receive Pell grants for 12 full time semesters.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
These grants are awarded by Lehigh Carbon Community College from funds allocated by the federal government. Award amounts will vary based on financial need, Pell grant eligibility, the enrollment status of the student, and the availability of funds.
Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) Grant
The state grant program awards funds to students who demonstrate financial need according to state criteria, are bona fide residents of Pennsylvania, have not received their first baccalaureate degree in any field, and are enrolled in credit classes for at least six credits per term in an approved two-year degree program of at least 60 credits. Students who received a state grant for attendance at another institution prior to attending LCCC must also provide an academic transcript from the school previously attended to the Financial Aid Office at Lehigh Carbon Community College. Students enrolled in all online courses must be nominated and approved by Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency in order to receive a state grant. Students enrolled in all developmental courses are not eligible for a state grant.
