The recently passed Illinois state budget means Lake Land College students who qualified for financial aid from the state will receive it for the 2017-2018 school year.
This form of financial aid is called the MAP grant and it does not have to be repaid. To help students who are making higher education decisions for fall 2017, the college is applying MAP grants to accounts for students who qualify.
Students can check their MAP grant status by logging into their Laker Hub account and selecting “Financial Aid” under the IRIS menu on the left and then “Award Letter.” While in the Laker Hub, students can register for New Student Orientation or call 217-234-5301.
For many students, a MAP grant combined with a Pell grant, both of which do not have to be repaid, will cover all tuition and fees for Lake Land College for the year. Tuition and fees for one year are about $3,900, nearly a fourth of tuition and fees at the average state university.
Lake Land College assures students who qualify will receive the MAP grant financial aid for the fall 2017 semester, which starts August 21. There is plenty of time for new students to get started! Visit lakelandcollege.edu and look for the “Enroll Now” button or call 217-234-5254.
