Prepare for Student Loan Payments to Restart

The Department of Education’s suspension of loan repayment has been extended through August 31, 2022. Students who have an outstanding loan balance will receive a notice to resume scheduled repayment after the expiration of the suspension. Federal Student Aid has created a toolkit to assist students with restarting student loan payments.

LCC has partnered with Student Connections to assist our students with the repayment process and repayment counseling. Call Student Connections at (866) 311-9450 to speak with a Borrower Advocate.
