Our Lancaster, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. locations will continue to adhere to the state and local mitigation requirements.
For nearly 15 months, LBC | Capital has remained unified and gracious toward one another as we worked together to reduce the risk posed by the COVID-19 virus. The college pivoted to remote delivery 14 months ago and then by God’s grace enjoyed a full year of face-to-face instruction on our Lancaster campus. Students, faculty and staff have persevered together, and the LBC | Capital family has honored God with our example of patience, compliance and creative problem-solving.
Recently, federal and state guidelines addressing the COVID-19 risk have changed. Consistent with these changes, the Lancaster campus COVID-19 mitigation practices are now adjusted in the following ways.
The CARES Act requires all colleges and universities participating in the program to provide access to the following information:
Recently legislation was enacted that created the CARES Act. Under this act, LBC | Capital received funding that must go directly to students to cover expenses related to the disruption of normal institutional operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The deadline is passed for filing the CARES Act Student Emergency Aid Application.

These emergency relief funds will be distributed based on federal government guidelines requiring institutions to distribute funds to specific student populations who are defined as having exceptional financial need.
Lancaster Bible College has defined students with having exceptional need to include priority to Pell Grant recipients. On that basis we developed three populations of students with exceptional need. These include undergraduate Pell Grant recipients, undergraduates who are not Pell Grant recipients but have high unmet financial need (up to 12000 EFC), and graduate students who have high financial need (up to 12000 EFC) as determined by the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).
Students who did not receive funding in the initial distribution may submit an Emergency Grant Application. Students must be a U.S. Citizen or eligible permanent resident and meet all federal financial aid eligibility requirements. Applications will be reviewed to determine eligibility.
Funds will be available until they are exhausted. They will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
