How To Apply

Four Easy Steps to Apply for Federal Financial Aid

STEP 1: APPLY for Admission at Louisiana Delta Community College.
You must be accepted in an Associate Degree program before LDCC can determine your eligibility for financial aid. Confirm your status with the
Admissions Office at 318-345-9001.

STEP 2: COMPLETE the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The FAFSA is available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov starting on January 1st of each year. You may sign your application electronically using your federal student aid FSA ID. If you do not have a FSA ID you can apply for one at the same time you complete you FAFSA. If you are dependent, your parent(s) should apply for a FSA ID also. Be sure to list LDCC’s school code – 041301 on the application so LDCC can receive your results electronically. Transfer and continuing LDCC students must meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements to receive federal financial aid.

STEP 3: EXAMINE your Student Aid Report (SAR) carefully.
Once your FAFSA application is processed you will receive an email from the Federal Processor with a link to your Student Aid Report (SAR). Be sure to check over your SAR for any errors. If you have to make corrections, you can do so electronically. Be sure both you and your parent(s)
re-sign the corrections electronically with your FSA IDs. If you do not receive the SAR within 2 weeks after you first submitted it online, contact the Federal Processor at 1-800-433-3243.

STEP 4: SUBMIT your Tracking Requirements, including Financial Aid Terms and Conditions
Once the Office of Financial Aid receives your FAFSA, you will receive notification via your LDCC student email address to complete and submit tracking requirements (documentation). Monitor your may LOLA Self Service to view any additional documents required to complete your application. These documents must be submitted by the priority deadline to ensure that LDCC Office of Financial Aid will have enough time to process your request by the tuition and fee payment deadline. Allow a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks for your aid application to be reviewed and processed.

Financial Aid Terms and Conditions                                                                                                                                                        Acceptance of your financial aid award indicates that you agree to comply with the rules and regulations that govern the programs for aid as well as the policies of this institution. Your award is subject to change if corrections or revisions are made to the information you provided on your applications for aid.
