Enrollment fees have recently increased to $20.00 per unit. Federal and State programs are available for eligible students to help with educational expenses. For information about how to apply for financial aid please follow the steps below. You may also contact the financial aid office at your college of choice for more information.
The Financial Aid
We strongly encourage you to apply online for financial aid. Prior to doing so, obtain a Department of Education Personal Identification Number (PIN). Your PIN serves as an e-signature. Both students and parents can obtain a PIN. Go to www.pin.ed.gov (link opens new browser window) to apply for a PIN. Providing your email address will expedite the receipt of your PIN; otherwise it will be mailed.
The financial aid process at LACCD begins with you submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) via www.fafsa.ed.gov (link opens new browser window) or by paper. You should not wait until you are admitted to the college of your choice to apply for financial aid. Below are the LACCD federal school codes:
Step Two: Follow Up
If you submitted your FAFSA online and provided an e-mail address, you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) via e-mail. If you applied online but did not provide an e-mail address, you will receive a SAR in approximately two weeks by mail. Students who completed a paper FAFSA may expect their SAR within 4 – 6 weeks. Your college will receive your information electronically from the Department of Education and will use the information to determine your financial aid eligibility. It is your responsibility to review your SAR to ensure that the information is correct. Keep your SAR for your records.
The Financial Aid Office will review your application and notify you if additional documents are required. Please make sure that your address is correct with the Financial Aid and Admissions Offices. Note: all colleges within the LACCD process financial aid files on a first-come, first-served basis. Therefore, it is very important that you respond to inquiries by the Financial Aid Office in a timely manner.
Step Three: The Notification Process
You will receive an Award Notification Letter.
Step Four: Disbursement
Financial Aid check(s) will be sent by mail to the address on file in the Admissions Office, are transferred electronically to the student’s bank account (EFT), and on rare occasions sent to the campus. It is your responsibility to report address and phone number changes to the Admissions and Financial Aid Offices.
Your enrollment will be verified and the disbursement amount will be adjusted accordingly.
If you have any questions about financial aid, please contact the financial aid office at your college of choice.
