Frequently Asked Questions
I completed the General Application and I do not have LCC information on the Applicant Record tab. What should I do?
LCC information is imported regularly.
If you are a new LCC student, we encourage you to review your scholarship application for LCC information the next business day.
If you have not taken a class between Fall 2014 and Spring 2016, your information will not be imported and you need to contact the Foundation Office at the email address below.
If LCC information is not visible after 48 hours, you should email email@example.com so your application can be reviewed.

How can I see the scholarship opportunities that I was automatically matched to?

Students may see scholarships that do not require additional action by clicking "All Opportunities" to review criteria for the opportunities that auto-match eligible applicants.
How do I know my recommended opportunity application was submitted?
Click on the Applications in the blue navigation bar. Select Active. Your General Application must say complete in the lower left hand corner and the active application should have submitted in the upper right hand corner.
When will I know if I have received a scholarship?

Can I be awarded more than one scholarship?
Due to the high number of eligible applicants and limited scholarship funding, both Lansing Community College and the Lansing Community College Foundation strive to assist the most students possible. Students may receive only one award per academic year. If you do accidentally receive two awards, you will be asked to select which one award you wish to keep.
