STEP 1: Apply for Admission at Louisiana Delta Community College
You must be accepted in an Associate Degree program before Delta 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 personal identification number PIN. If you do not have a pin you can apply for one at the same time you complete you FAFSA. If you are dependent, your parent(s) should apply for a PIN also. Be sure to list Delta’s school code – 041301 – on the application so that Delta can receive your results electronically. Transfer and continuing Delta students must meet Delta’s minimum Satisfactory Academic Progress standards to receive federal financial aid.
STEP 3: Carefully examine your Student Aid Report (SAR)
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 PINs. 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: Complete the Delta Financial Aid Application
Once the Office of Financial Aid receives your SAR, you may check LOLA Self Service to see any additional documents required to complete your application. These documents must be submitted by the priority deadline to ensure that Delta will have enough time to process your request by the fee payment deadline. Allow a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks for your aid application to be reviewed and processed
Step 5: Accept your Award and Terms and Conditions on LOLA
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.
Once your aid is processed, you will receive your award notification via your LA Delta student email address. The award notification will direct you to LoLA (our student self-service area) at my.lctcs.edu to view your awards. Some awards will require your "acceptance "via LoLA. **You must make a selection under the terms and conditions tab. Acceptance of your financial aid award indicates that you agree to comply or that you "accept" the terms and conditions along with all regulations that govern the programs for aid as well as the policies of this institution.
