Bookstore Financial Aid

If funds remain after tuition and fees are subtracted from your Financial Aid, an account will be created at the bookstore so books/supplies can be charged at the on-campus bookstore or their online store. There are specific charging dates each semester, see below for the current charging dates. If you need items after the specified dates, then you will need to pay for them out of pocket.

Fall 2020: Open 24/7 online for shopping with Curbside Pickup, at the Student Union Building, on the Middletown Campus. Team members are on-campus filling orders and taking phone calls between 10am and 4pm during the week.

• I don’t see my Financial Aid listed, what is wrong?

There could be several reasons as to why your aid is not listed, these are the most common reasons:

  • Not within the Bookstore Charging Dates—Be sure to check the dates posted at the top of lfcc.edu/fabooks. If accounts have closed for the semester, then any books and supplies must be paid for out of pocket. Any excess aid after applied to tuition will be issued as a refund to you later in the semester.

  • Items on To Do List—If documents still need to be provided to the Financial Aid Office, then aid will not be available in the Bookstore. Please submit them ASAP via your To Do List, email, or secure upload. Please Note: Books cannot be placed on hold while you wait for aid to be processed, if you need them right away, you will need to pay out of pocket. Any excess aid after applied to tuition will be issued as a refund to you later in the semester.
