Check your major to be sure financial aid will cover your courses

Make sure your major in Banner is correct!

Because of federal regulations, financial aid can only pay for courses in your major or program of study. It is important to keep your major updated so you don’t have to pay for courses without financial aid.

Keeping your major up-to-date also helps you complete on time! Even if you don’t receive financial aid, be sure your major is correct so we can communicate with you about any changes in your program that could impact your required courses.

Sexual Assault Awareness Month: Promoting safety, respect and equality

When someone forces, manipulates or coerces another person into sexual activity, they commit sexual violence. This happens any time a person does not or cannot give consent. Reasons someone might not be able to consent include:

  • Fear
  • Illness
  • Disability
  • Influence of alcohol or other drugs

Sexual violence includes a range of actions and behaviors. Some examples include rape, child sexual abuse, sexual exploitation and sexual harassment.

Sexual violence happens to people of all ages, races, genders, sexual orientations, religions, abilities, professions, incomes and ethnicities. It happens every day in our communities, schools and workplaces

Support is available for students. Please contact LCC Counseling at 517-483-1924 or visit Campus Resources in the StarZone.
