Hertel, WI

The LCOOCC St. Croix Outreach Site is located in the Youth Center on the St. Croix Chippewa Reservation in Hertel, Wisconsin. The Outreach site is centrally located to serve the St. Croix Sand Lake, Gaslyn, Round Lake, Maple Plain and Danbury Communities.

The St. Croix Outreach site offers five Associate degree programs in Small Business Management, Native American Studies, Liberal Arts, Medical Office Mid-Management, and Casino Operations Management, and a one year Certificate program in Renewable Energy. The St. Croix Outreach Site is located less than an hour from the main campus in Hayward, enabling many students to begin their general education studies at the St. Croix Outreach site and then transfer to Hayward to complete their degree programs in a diversity of disciplines. Through ITV technology, St. Croix campus students can take introductory and advanced classes in an array of degree program offerings.

The Site boasts a 10-station computer lab with projection and ITV technology, enabling classroom broadcasts among the four outreach sites and the main campus. With the recent addition of a new ITV classroom, the St. Croix Outreach Site is now considered, along with the main campus, a “Teaching “site for ITV classes.

The St. Croix Outreach Site is dedicated to providing Community based programs to all members of the St. Croix community. TrANS (Transportation Alliance for New Solutions) program testing and support, traditional Native American Beading, ANA Language Grant classes, and 4 year degree cohort support after graduation, are among the programs offered through LCOOCC Extension and Work-based Learning programs.

For more information, please feel free to stop by the St. Croix Youth Center located just off Highway 70 between Spooner and Siren next to the St. Croix Tribal Government Offices and the St. Croix Health Clinic or contact Kate G. Lechnir, the St. Croix Site coordinator at 800-236-2195 ext. 5312, or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

The LCOOCC Lac du Flambeau Outreach Site is located in the Lac du Flambeau grade school on the Lac du Flambeau Chippewa Reservation in Lac du Flambeau, Wisconsin. Students attending classes at this site come from as far away as Crandon and the Lac Vieux Desert Chippewa Reservation. We are convenient to Lac du Flambeau, Minocqua, Woodruff, Mercer and other surrounding communities.

The Lac du Flambeau Outreach Site offers two Associate degree programs in Native American Studies and Liberal Arts. The Lac du Flambeau Outreach Site is located approximately two hours from the main campus in Hayward. A number of students have elected to begin their general education studies at Lac du Flambeau and will transfer to Hayward to complete their degree programs in a diversity of disciplines. This process allows students to stay at home for at least their first year of college. Through ITV technology and online courses, Lac du Flambeau students can take introductory classes in an array of degree program offerings before declaring a major course of study.

Classes are small at the Lac du Flambeau site and instructors strive to foster collaborative learning environments in the classroom. For these reasons, students tend to become very close and become a system of support for each other as they work on their degrees. Most instructors live in the community. Some are tribal members. In addition, whenever possible, instructors draw on the strengths and knowledge of elders and other community members to meet the unique needs of the student body and course curriculum.

The Lac du Flambeau grade school has a 16-station computer lab with projection, which is open to students late afternoons and evenings. A handful of computers are available to students to use during the day. ITV technology enables classroom broadcasts between the four outreach sites and the main campus.

For more information, please contact Mary M. Sharlow, the Lac du Flambeau Site coordinator at 715-588-3457, or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

APPLYING FOR FINANCIAL AID- FAFSA SCHOOL CODE: 017199

FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid and is the cornerstone of all Financial Aid Programs. The moment that the previous year's tax return is complete, submit your FAFSA. There are two methods of submission, either via the paper form, or via Pell Grant Website. In either case, make sure you notify the Financial Aid Office so we know to look for your application.

Tips for Filling out the FAFSA

* Have your tax information on hand and ready to copy. Roughly 30% of all FAFSA's will be selected by the Department of Education for Verification. Without that documentation, Financial Aid cannot be processed.
* When initially filling out the FAFSA, use information that comes from your Tax Returns. If your financial
situation has changed, you must work with your Financial Aid Office to change your FAFSA after initial submission.
* Completely fill out the FAFSA, leaving blanks only slows the process
* Remember, this is a legal document being submitted to a federal agency: fibbing is a felony
* The earlier you submit your FAFSA, the more likely that you will be eligible for Wisconsin State Grants

 

Rather than burden students with a debt that takes years to pay off, LCOOCC has elected to not provide Student Loans to its students. However, this makes Grants and Scholarships even more important to offset the costs associated with attending College.

Scholarships & Grants

Wisconsin State Grants are offered on a first-come first-served basis determined by when FAFSA was completed. Therefore, the earlier that you complete your FAFSA, the greater the possibility of obtaining a State Grant. Other grants are also available through your Financial Aid Office but have specialized criteria and limited budgets. You can find information on Wisconsin State Student Grants -- including the Wisconsin Indian Grant -- here.

Current Scholarships

* Work with your high school to determine if there any scholarships available through them

* Contact your place of work to determine if they have any scholarships available to employee

* Go online to websites such as: www.college-scholarships.com or www.scholarshipguidance.com and begin hunting

* The American Indian College Fund provides Scholarship opportunities to Native American (and to a lesser extent, all) students enrolled at Tribal Colleges. You can apply online at www.collegefund.org

*2014 - 2015 Ge-naadamaagoyan Native American Scholarship

*AIGC STEM Loan

*Sentry Security Scholarship

*www.fundforeducationabroad.org

*www.schoolsoup.com/scholarship-directory

*Emergency Lights Co. Scholarship

*Excel Builders Scholarship
