Financial Aid

Financing a college education is one of the most important concerns a person considers. As costs continue to rise, LBC continues to provide a variety of financial aid options providing assistance to approximately 85 percent of the student body.

LBC participates in the federal and state aid programs. The College also offers many scholarships, as well as other opportunities, to help students finance their education.

Federal and State Aid Programs

The federal and state aid programs are designed to provide financial assistance to students with financial need. The amount of the award is determined by a formula established by the federal government. All applicants for federal and state aid must be United States citizens or eligible noncitizens, be registered with Selective Service if male, be making satisfactory academic progress, and not be in default on any loan or owe a refund on any grant. Applications for federal and state aid should be filed annually after January 1 of the current year. LBC uses the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the following programs: Federal Pell Grant, PA State Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), Federal Work Study (FWS), and the Federal Direct Loan Program. The FAFSA can be completed online. LBC’s Federal Code is 003285.

The following programs are available:

  • Federal Pell Grant. The Federal Pell Grant is available to students who demonstrate financial need. Students must be enrolled for at least three credit hours. Grant amounts are determined annually by the federal government.
  • PA State Grant (PHEAA). Residents of Pennsylvania may apply for a PA State Grant. This grant is based on financial need. Eligibility requirements include Pennsylvania residency, program offering of at least two years duration, and part-time enrollment of at least six credit hours. The deadline for filing is May 1 of the current academic year.
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG). The Federal SEOG is available to students who demonstrate financial need. Awards vary from $400 upward, annually, subject to availability of government funds.
  • Federal Work Study (FWS). The Federal Work Study program is available to students who demonstrate financial need. Students earn funds to pay for their educational expenses. Jobs on campus are in all areas of employment and hours vary from ten to fifteen weekly. Community service jobs are also available off-campus through this program.
  • Federal Subsidized/Unsubsidized Direct Loan. This program is available to students who are enrolled for at least six credit hours. Students may borrow up to $5,500 for their first academic year, $6,500 their second academic year, and up to $7,500 per year for their remaining years. At least $2,000 will be in Unsubsidized Direct Loans
  • Additional Unsubsidized Direct Loans. This program is available to independent students enrolled for at least six hours. Students can borrow up to $4,000 per year for the first two years and up to $5,000 per year for the remaining years.
  • Federal PLUS Direct Loans. This program is available to credit-worthy parents of dependent students enrolled for at least six hours. Amounts are determined by the difference between the costs and other aid. Interest rate is set annually. Interest and principal payments begin within sixty days from disbursement date. Deferment options available.

Financial Aid Eligibility

In order to maintain financial aid eligibility for the federal financial aid programs, as well as institutional aid, a student must meet the following requirements of satisfactory academic progress:

  • Qualitative Requirement: Grade Point Average
  Credits Passed   Cumulative GPA  
  12   1.5  
  24   1.5  
  48   1.5  
  72   1.75  
  96   1.9  
  129   1.9  

 

  • Quantitative Requirement
    Undergraduate students must successfully complete a minimum of 67 percent of the credit hours attempted each academic year.
  • Maximum Time Frame for Completion of Educational Objective

    Undergraduate students must complete their degree program within 150 percent of the published length of their degree program. For example, a student enrolled in the four year degree program should complete the program in twelve semesters (six years); a student enrolled in the two year degree program should complete the program in six semesters (three years); a student enrolled in the one year certificate/diploma program should complete the program in four semesters (two years).

    Students’ academic progress will be evaluated at the end of each academic year. Students who are not successfully completing courses at the minimum levels, as outlined above, are considered to be making unsatisfactory progress and will not be eligible for financial aid for the following semester. When a student’s financial aid has been terminated, his/her academic status will be reviewed after the following academic semester to determine if financial aid can be reinstated. Financial aid eligibility will be reinstated once the student reaches the required minimum.

    Students may appeal in writing to the Director of Financial Aid if they believe that extenuating circumstances were present. For a description of the appeal process, as well as a further detailed description of the academic progress requirements, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 717.560.8254 or by email.

Federal Financial Aid Refund Policy

The Financial Aid Office is required by federal statute to determine how much financial aid was earned by students who withdraw, drop out, are dismissed, or take a leave of absence prior to completing 60 percent of a payment period or term.

For a student who withdraws after the 60 percent point-in-time, there are no unearned funds. However, a school must still complete a return calculation in order to determine whether the student is eligible for a post-withdrawal disbursement.

 The calculation is based on the percentage of earned aid using the following Federal Return of Title IV funds formula:

Percentage of payment period or term completed = the number of days completed up to the withdrawal date divided by the total days in the payment period or term. (Any break of five days or more is not counted as part of the days in the term.) This percentage is also the percentage of earned aid.

Funds are returned to the appropriate federal program based on the percentage of unearned aid using the following formula:

Aid to be returned = (100 percent of the aid that could be disbursed minus the percentage of earned aid) multiplied by the total amount of aid that could have been disbursed during the payment period or term.

If a student earned less aid than was disbursed, the institution would be required to return a portion of the funds and the student would be required to return a portion of the funds. Keep in mind that when Title IV funds are returned, the student borrower may owe a debit balance to the institution.

If a student earned more aid than was disbursed to him/her, the institution would owe the student a post-withdrawal disbursement which must be paid within 120 days of the student’s withdrawal.

The institution must return the amount of Title IV funds for which it is responsible no later than 45 days after the date of the determination of the date of the student’s withdrawal.

Refunds are allocated in the following order:

  • Unsubsidized Federal Direct Loans
  • Subsidized Federal Direct Loans
  • Federal Parent (PLUS) Direct Loans
  • Federal Pell Grants for which a Return of funds is required
  • Federal Supplemental Opportunity Grants for which a Return of funds is required
  • Other assistance under this Title for which a Return of funds is required (e.g., State, institutional and private aid)
