Federal Student Aid (FSA) continues to warn borrowers about student loan scams. With so many recent efforts to create new programs that provide debt relief, even savvy borrowers might find it hard to tell the difference between a scam and legitimate forgiveness and relief efforts

Beware of any source that is not directing you to FSA or your loan servicer.

The Financial Aid Office assists students with finding resources to finance their postsecondary education. Financial Aid resources are available through the federal government, state government, private organizations, and Lansing Community College. Students can contact the Financial Aid Office by calling 517-483-1200, option 1, or by email at
