Students with more than 104 credits (if associate-degree-seeking) or more than 53 credits (if certificate-seeking) are not considered to be meeting the SAP policy. Typically students with previous degrees are exceeding these credit limits and so must appeal their financial aid standing with LCCC. In the event that an appeal is successful, the student can then apply for the Wyoming Works scholarship as well.
