Your counselor will assist you in selecting classes and in developing an educational plan that will help you meet your educational goals. During your appointment, you will also receive information regarding transfers, certificates and degree programs, majors, and career planning. All counselors will be assisting you virtually. Visit to make an appointment, or “knock on the door” for brief questions. If the counselors are offline, you can “send offline message” and they will get back to you as soon as possible

Get money for college you don’t have to pay back!

Visit the Financial Aid Webpage to learn about the fee waiver and other forms of financial aid. If you qualify, the waiver can be used to pay your tuition fees for the entire academic year.

The waiver cannot be used to pay your $11 health fee.

In light of Covid-19, the Financial Aid office will be operating the same with the exception of appointments. To check your status or to ask a financial aid representative a question, send an email to @email from your student email account. All emails are answered within 24 hours.

If you need money to help with books, supplies, food, rent, and other costs it is recommended that you complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the California Dream Act Application (CADAA) if you are not a United States citizen or permanent resident.

You do not have to be enrolled as a full-time student to qualify for financial aid. Part-time students who are enrolled for less than the 12 units required for full-time status may also be eligible for financial aid.

If you qualify, you can get hundreds of dollars you don’t have to pay back. You can also get low interest-rate loans you don’t have to start paying back until after you graduate.

LASC’s Federal School Code is: 007047.

Complete the FAFSA

Since all classes have transitioned online, you do not need to purchase a parking permit for Summer and Fall 2020.

Effective fall 2020, the Student Health Fee will be as follow:

  • $19 for Fall and Spring term
  • $16 for Winter/Summer term

Your Student ID Card is free and gives you access to a lot of important campus resources, such as the library, tutoring, and computer labs. You can also use it to receive student discounts at many local, national, and international businesses and programs.

To get your LASC Student ID Card, go to the Welcome Center, room 118 of the Student Services Building (SSB) during posted business hours, with a copy of your fee receipt or class printout, and a photo ID, such as your driver’s license or state/work ID.
