Student Financial Assistance
Through its financial assistance programs, Lurleen B Wallace Community College seeks to provide the opportunity for all deserving students to continue their education.
Register with Selective Service
If you are a male who is at least 18 years old and born after December 31, 1959, you MUST be registered with Selective Service in order to receive Federal student aid.
To receive Pell Grant funding, a student must first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov. The application opens each year on October 1. For more information on completing the FAFSA, please click here. Once the online application has been received by the college Financial Aid Office, the college will notify the student that the application has been received and, the student must contact the LBWCC Financial Aid office to finalize processing of the financial aid award. LBW Community College School Code is 008988.
LBWCC does not participate in the Federal Direct Student Loan Program, but does cooperate with private lenders who offer alternative/private student loans. More information about alternative/private student loans can be obtained here.
Workforce Investment Act (WIA)
The WIA program offers assistance to selected eligible individuals who enter approved training programs at LBW Community College. The local Alabama Employment Office determines eligibility, and funds provided are based on the program in which the student has been accepted.
College Work Study Program
This is a campus-based employment program in which students are paid an hourly wage for employment. Students must apply for federal aid through the FAFSA, must be awarded Pell Grant by the college Financial Aid Office, and be a full-time student to be awarded a Work-Study position. They must also complete an application in the financial aid office. Awards are based on a first-come first-serve basis according to skills required for each position available.
Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis. An LBWCC application for admission, official transcripts, and completed scholarship application must be on file at the college before a scholarship can be awarded. Types of scholarships include Presidential Honors; Ambassadors; Presidential Technical; Technical Waivers; Performing Arts in Music; Drama; Art and Athletic scholarships.
