LCCC FAFSA application and completion rate rise

Laramie County Community College received a grant from the National College Access Network. LCCC received the grant for being the only two-year institution to increasing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.

The application and completion rates of FAFSA have been raised by at least 5 percent.

LCCC and Laramie County School District 1 joined together to secure a FAFSA Completion Challenge grant for the 2016-2017 academic year back in fall 2016. Cheyenne ended up being one of only 22 U.S. cities that earned the increase.

The city of Cheyenne received $41,463 and had the second highest increase by 12.61 percent. The partnership also awarded an additional $50,000 to continue helping students reach their academic goals and helping them grow into a successful career.

This benefits the graduating class of 2017 and other students using Hathaway and LCCC Foundation scholarships for their education.

I have lived in Cheyenne for more than 10 years. I have been fascinated by art and design since my time in Henderson Elementary School. When I entered into high school, I began getting into media. I’ve worked on computer graphics in CorelDraw and digital art on Photoshop. I started going to Laramie County Community College in June 2015 in the same week as graduating from East High School. My interests are usually about animation, video games and I would like to become a graphic designer in the future.
