Campus closure due to COVID-19 and your financial aid status:
We want to assure you that while LPC’s college buildings are empty while we shelter in place, staff continue to work remotely to ensure we provide the support and services that you need. The campus closure will not impact processing of your financial aid and won’t delay receipt of any financial aid funds you are eligible for.
We are unable to answer our general or office phone lines while off campus. We do retrieve voice mail periodically, but the most effective way to communicate with us is by email. Always email us from your Zonemail email account and include your Student ID, or we will not be able to provide you with any personal information about your financial aid. You can request a return phone call in your email. A staff person will call you usually within a few hours depending on when you call. Please be advised that you will see the phone number blocked since our staff is calling from their personal cell phones. If you are expecting a call from us, please accept a blocked number as it is likely to be from our staff.
Coming soon: the ability for us to advise you personally using Cranium Café.
To submit forms to our office, we prefer you print, sign, scan your form and attach to an email. If you cannot do that, then please mail your forms to our office. We will pick up our mail weekly.
This is a reminder that if you haven’t filed a FAFSA or DREAM Act Application for 2019-2020, it’s not too late! Qualified students can still receive a retroactive CCPG fee waiver, Pell grant or Promise Scholarship, and a Pell grant for summer. Your current year FAFSA or Dream Act Application must be filed before June 30, 2020.
Processing of 2020-2021 Financial Aid files is now further delayed. Our original target date of April 1 is pushed back by at least 2 – 4 weeks due to the campus closure. We are uploading new processing software that must be thoroughly tested before we go live. We will email you when we are ready, with instructions.
If you have not already filed a FAFSA or DREAM Application for 2020-2021, please take this time to do so. You will need the 2020-2021 results to receive a CCPG fee waiver for summer or fall when you register in April. And next school year even if you don’t qualify for a Pell grant, you may find that you qualify for a $600/semester Promise Scholarship just by filing your FAFSA/Dream App and enrolling in 12 units! Students enrolled in 9 units receive $450/semester.
Please be safe, take care of yourself and your loved ones, and know that we will be back in the office to fully assist you as soon as possible.

Most people may already know, due to the coronavirus pandemic, The Treasury Department and IRS has provided relief for taxpayers by extending the federal tax deadline to July 15th, 2020 and the State of California FTB moved their extension from June 15 on the same date as the Federal, July 15, 2020. There are no penalties for deferring your payment and no interest will accrue during this period.
The IRS website posted a Q & A regarding the extension to File and Pay Deadlines click on the link. https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/filing-and-payment-deadlines-questions-and-answers
The tax services (VITA) might continue in May 2020 if the restrictions are lifted, these services will be through Tri-Valley Career Center (more to come on this).
