Admission

Financial Aid

  • Federal aid may only be disbursed through one institution per semester.  If you are concurrently enrolled with NIC, LCSC is the home institution and your financial aid will be administered by LCSC.
  • Apply for admission and submit a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) by March 1 to be considered for the maximum amount of LCSC financial aid.  LCSC’s FAFSA school code is 001621.
  • Your NIC and LCSC credits will be combined to calculate enrollment but you must have at least 6 credits from LCSC to receive financial aid from LCSC.  Students who qualify for institutionally-funded scholarships from LCSC must be enrolled in a minimum of 12 LCSC credits. 
  • Complete a Concurrent Enrollment Form (obtained from NIC Registrar’s Office) and submit to NIC Registrar’s Office after you have registered for NIC courses (see below).

Registration at NIC

  • If you are new to NIC, the first semester you attend NIC, you must meet with an NIC advisor before registering for classes.
  • Registration dates vary per semester, but general Summer/Fall registration begins in April and Spring registration begins in November.
  • You can view the NIC class schedule and register for classes on-line at www.nic.edu/schedules.

Paying your Fees

  • Please note that concurrently enrolled students are required to pay fees to NIC and LCSC separately.
  • LCSC tuition and fees will be paid prior to any disbursements.  Residual funds will be available to pay your NIC fees.
  • LCSC fees can be paid at the Cashier’s Window, outside the Controller's Office, or on WarriorWeb.  They must be paid by the 5th day of classes (for Fall and Spring semesters).  Please contact NIC to find out their fee payment deadline and payment options.
  • If you need to defer your fees at NIC before the start of a given term, you may submit a copy of your accepted, signed LCSC Award Letter to the NIC Business Office.  Your financial aid award must be sufficient to cover your LCSC and your NIC costs.  If your financial aid is insufficient to pay your NIC tuition, you will be responsible for paying the difference in accordance with NIC’s published dates and policies.
  • NIC's Registrar's Office will notify the LCSC Financial Aid Office of NIC attendance after NIC's tenth day of school.
  • If NIC's Registrar's Office could not confirm your attendance, Professors at NIC will need to confirm it via an email to finaid@lcsc.edu before funds are posted to your Student Account.
  • LCSC tuition and fees will be paid prior to any disbursements.

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

  • You must successfully pass at least 6 credits at LCSC in order to remain in compliance with SAP.
  • You must maintain a minimum 2.0 grade point average.
  • You must earn passing grades in at least 67%  of the credits listed on your transcript.

At the end of the semester

  • Make sure you order an official NIC transcript and have it sent to the LCSC Registrar’s Office.  The transcript request form can be found at www.nic.edu/registrar
  • Remember your signature and payment is ALWAYS required to release your transcript.
