Central Lakes College is responding to greater financial need from a record number of students. The College has expanded the Emergency Loan Fund program to assist students with incomplete financial aid files and/or loans that have not been processed. Students with the greatest need will receive priority. Brainerd campus students may inquire in person at the Financial Aid Window between 8 a.m. and noon Monday, Wednesday, or Friday and between 1 and 4:30 p.m. Tuesday or Thursday. Staples campus students should see Steve Jennisen in the Counseling Office during regular service hours. This is in addition to having extended the Final Drop for Non-Payment (of tuition and fees) deadline until Oct. 18 (from Sept. 20). The College is doing all it can to alleviate students’ concerns.
