Fall Momentum Program 


Study in the Summer to Maximize your Financial Aid Monies in the Fall 2020


If you are enrolled or plan to enroll for any summer term (Maymester, Summer I, Summer II) you may be eligible to participate in the Fall Momentum Program. The program helps keep your College going momentum from summer to Fall.  For students who register for 12 credit hours for Fall 2020, Laredo College commits to paying for 3 credit hours as long as you complete 6 credit hours by the end of summer with a grade of C or better. This is a fantastic opportunity for students who qualify to extend their summer education into Fall. Federal Financial Aid students, could be eligible to receive an additional $500.00 or more in their refunds (refund will vary by student).  Don’t delay register for Summer and Fall today!  The Laredo College Fall Momentum Program is here.
