3 Things You Need to Know Before Registering

Wouldn't it be great to have a place where you could receive all of your financial aid and student account information and alerts? A place where you can find out what's going on around campus? A place that would inform you of parking and traffic notices so you aren't late to class? There is - your LCC student e-mail account! Your student e-mail account is a gateway to all the information you need to have a successful experience at LCC.

Whether you are a new student, a returning student or even a guest from another university, it is imperative that you get in the habit of checking your LCC student e-mail account regularly. There you will receive information such as:

  • Alerts when a new bill has been posted to your student account
  • Financial aid account information
  • Notification of refunds
  • Campus closures
  • Student policy changes
  • Changes to the academic calendar
  • Information on campus/community events
  • Information from your program of study
  • Traffic/parking notices
  • Bi-weekly student e-newsletter

Log into your Student E-mail Account

If you are unfamiliar with your LCC student e-mail account, visit our Five Star Service Center page for a step-by-step guide to getting started.

All LCC students are required to:

  • Pay tuition and fees in full, or
  • Sign up for an installment payment plan, or
  • Financial aid students expecting aid to cover their balance must carefully review their account. Financial aid students may still be required to either pay a portion out of pocket or sign up for a payment plan if their financial aid does not cover the semester balance in full. Financial aid students meeting certain criteria may be eligible for the Financial Aid Payment Plan.
  • Submit an authorization form for a third party sponsorship to the Student Finance Office. Students with third party authorizations that do not cover the balance in full are still required to pay their portion out of pocket or sign up for a payment plan by the payment due date.

Students who do not complete one of the above options by their payment due date will be dropped from classes for non-payment. Payment due dates are based upon the day a student registers. Payments are due by the due date listed on the student bill. Student bills will be available to view in Banner Student Self Service. Each time a new bill is generated, students will be notified through their LCC Student E-mail account.

About the Payment Plan Options

The various installment payment plans help students manage their educational expenses. This is not a loan program. Students have no accumulated debt, no interest or finance charges are assessed, and no credit check is required. The cost to participate in a payment plan is $20 per semester.

Students choosing to participate in an installment plan to pay for tuition and fees authorize a scheduled automatic credit/debit card payment (VISA, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express). Once the payment plan is activated, LCC will automatically withdraw a payment on the stated payment dates from the designated account or credit card. The payment plan enrollment fee and any required down payments are withdrawn immediately from the designated credit/debit card.

A safer way to receive your refunds.

LCC is partnering with ECSI through the TouchNet Student Account center to process students refunds. Through this partnership, students will be able to use their Banner Self Service to access their TouchNet Student Account Center to manage their refund selection process.

All students will log into myLCC to access their Banner Self Service Account and select the TouchNet Student Account Center link to set up or change their refund preference. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT EACH STUDENT MUST HAVE A PHONE NUMBER, ADDRESS, AND BIRTH DATE IN THEIR STUDENT PROFILE. This information is necessary for identity verification with ECSI to allow for selection of a preference.

Students will have two options for receiving their refund money:

  1. Direct deposit to an existing bank account.
    Via ACH transfer, the student will receive their refund into the bank account the student designates. The student will need the Bank Name, Routing Number (9 digit number), and the Account Number. Depending on the student's bank processes, refunds will be deposited into their designated bank account 1 - 5 days after refunds are disbursed.
  2. Apply for a Discover Cashback Checking account.
    ECSI through TouchNet will offer students the choice to apply for a Discover Cashback Checking account. This option can be reviewed and applied for during the refund selection process. Once the student is approved for an account, refunds will be sent via ACH transfer to the students account.

(Please note: If a student does not select one of these options, refunds will be issued in the form of a paper check mailed to the student. The check will be mailed up to 21 days after refunds are disbursed do to the processing involved in paper checks. This is why it is highly encouraged for all students to select a refund preference to enable fast and secure delivery through ACH to the desired bank account.)
