“This service will ensureÂ community members can complete the FAFSA, on-site, with confidence,” says LTC Financial Aid Manager Jessica Hemenway. “Customers will learn their Expected Financial Contribution (EFC), what documents are necessary for future FAFSA filings and receive one-on-one attention.”
At the LTC Cleveland Campus, individuals can stop in the Financial Aid officeÂ MondayÂ throughÂ Thursday 7:30am to 6pmÂ andÂ Friday 7:30am to 3:30pmÂ to receive assistance in completing a FAFSA.Â
