When to Secure Your Financial Aid Award

April 23, 2013

Incoming students who are eager to secure their financial aid awards may run into a roadblock:  Creating a Lewis & Clark email account.

Please know that, even if you have already paid your admissions deposit, you will not be able to create an LC email account until later in May. The Admissions team will send you information on how to do so at that time.

If your first semester will be fall 2013, the steps to secure your financial aid award should be completed in June, but no later than July 1, 2013.

In fact, some loans may require a credit check, which is only good for 90 days. If you process those loans now, your credit approval has the potential to expire before we would be able to disburse funds!

So, while we appreciate your efforts to be proactive with securing your aid, please wait until after you’ve been instructed by Admissions to create an LC email account to do so.

Thank you!
