Lake Land College offers the Laker+ Financial Aid Program to eligible students through FAFSA

MATTOON — Lake Land College students can now complete a FAFSA to find out if they are eligible for the Laker+ financial aid program.

With the Laker+ program, students eligible for financial aid often receive more than enough to cover tuition and fees, so any remaining money is returned to the student.

The Laker+ program maximizes financial aid opportunities for eligible students to cover tuition and fees and provides support for living expenses. This program is in effect now and will be available to those applying for the Fall 2022 through Summer 2024 semesters.

Students who receive aid first have their tuition and fees covered by the MAP grant, institutional funds and scholarships, and then the federal PELL grant.

Laker+ is available to those living in the University District of Christian, Clark, Clay, Coles, Crawford, Douglas, Edgar, Effingham, Fayette, Jasper, Montgomery, Moultrie, and Shelby counties.
