After completing your FAFSA, check the latest information and status of your financial aid application by logging into the Financial Aid Portal. The portal is available to you anytime, 24/7.

Financial Aid Portal Login >>

How to Log In

To login to the Financial Aid Portal you need your Social Security number (no dashes) and your Global PIN issued by Registration. Your initial Global PIN will be your birth date in (mmddyy) format.

For example, a student born on January 9, 1985 will need to enter 010985.

Change my Global PIN.

Global PIN tip: if you change your Global PIN to a 4-digit number, you need to add a zero at the beginning. For example: 1234 should be entered as 01234.

Global PIN changes will not update in the Financial Aid Portal until that evening when the synchronization runs to match the Global PIN to the Financial Aid Password.

Important things to look for

  • Documents you have turned in, or need to turn in
  • Messages from the Financial Aid Office
  • Loan disbursements
  • Your financial aid award
  • The amount of your financial aid check after tuition and fees have been paid. The dollar amount of your check will post in the column titled 'Additional Info'. If the dollar amount displays all zeros, contact The Financial Aid office.

If you decide not to attend Lower Columbia College, you must notify the Financial Aid Office by Friday of the first week of classes.

If you have received a financial aid check, return it in full to the LCC Cashier. Students whose tuition is paid and fail to attend will have a repayment calculated per federal regulations.

Your application for financial aid, in addition to registering for classes, implies acceptance of your financial aid award and certifies that you have read, understood, and agree to the Conditions of your Financial Aid Award, and LCC's Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards (SAP) listed in the Financial Aid Handbook. You allow the LCC cashier to pay your quarterly tuition and fees, and up to $200 for any unpaid funds you owe LCC with your award.

You are responsible for paying any tuition and fees not covered by your award.

Students who are awarded a loan and are attending LCC for the first time will not be issued a loan check until 30 days after the first quarters' classes start.
