    File the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

    If you plan to utilize the Lansing Promise Scholarship at LCC, you are required to file the FAFSA each year. The Lansing Promise Scholarship is a "last dollar" scholarship which means that state and federal financial "gift" aid are awarded to a student's account prior to the scholarship awarding. File the FAFSA at each year by March 1st for the following academic year. If you need help with the FAFSA, reach out to the LCC Financial Aid Office or the StarZone.

    Establish Placement Levels

    If you haven't already, it's time to upload your high school transcript, SAT or ACT scores, or AP Test scores so that we can help determine your starting place at LCC. If you are not able to get placement levels with these documents, don't worry. You can take our placement tests.

    You can check if you currently have levels in reading, writing, and math in the profile tab of your myLCC account.

    Upload documents, check testing hours and location, and view sample questions through the testing center website.
