Your Future Awaits

Wherever you are in your life, education, or career, we at LASC will support you towards your future career plans. Your educational goals become our goals for you. At LASC, you can discover your passion, find your voice, connect with your community, and rise to your success.


At LASC, we have classes and programs that work on your schedule, with courses offered in the evenings, weekends, online, and short-term, 8-week courses, as well as traditional daytime courses. Our expansive list of programs to study bring you enormous possibilities towards a flourishing career.


LASC prides itself with exceptional instructors who are dedicated to your success. Choose from a wide variety of
associate degrees, short-term certificates, and transfer degrees that are matched with guaranteed transfer agreements with local four-year colleges and universities, giving you a smooth transition to complete your goals.


It doesn’t matter if you want to transfer to a four-year university, graduate with a short-term certificate, or get an associate degree, you can save hundreds and possibly thousands of dollars by going to LASC compared to attending trade schools or going to four-year universities all four years. Make your money go further to finance your future ambitions.

Get Started! – 4 Steps to Become an LASC Student

STEP 1: Submit Your Application

Applying to LASC is free and takes just a few minutes.

Requirements to Apply:

  • Be 18 years old or older
  • Have a high school diploma or its equivalent (i.e. GED or California High School Proficiency Exam)
    (exceptions apply)

There are exceptions to these requirements.
Per California Community College Apply (, if you don’t have a high school diploma or its equivalent, you can still apply if:

  • you are an apprentice as defined by Section 3077 of the California Labor Code.
  • you meet with an academic counselor to see if you would be able to carry out the academic demands to benefit from a college education from your previous experiences. Contact our Counseling Department if you’d like to set up an appointment.
  • you are a minor without a high school diploma (or its equivalent) as special part-time or full-time students.

K-12 Students can apply to take courses at LASC as concurrently enrolled students by completing our Supplemental Application for Admission of Students in Grades K-12.

STEP 2: Apply for Financial Aid

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

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.

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and it will determine if you qualify for several different types of federal and state financial aid grants, fee waivers, and loans. And, you don’t need to have a low income to qualify. It’s based on many different economic and situational factors, not only your or your family’s income.

LASC’s Federal School Code is: 007047.

Complete the FAFSA

For more information, visit LASC’s Financial Aid page.

Are you a DACA recipient or qualify for AB540? If so, you can complete the CADAA (California Dream Act Application) to see if you qualify for state financial aid.

STEP 3: Attend a Student Orientation

Prepare for your time at LASC by learning about our student support services, get to know our campus, and discover all of the programs and opportunities.

You might be excused from the Orientation and Counseling steps of Enrollment if:

  • You have already earned an associate degree or higher. If so, please show proof of your degree to Admissions & Records.
  • You are only taking one (1) class for personal enrichment or job advancement.

If either of these applies to you, please go to the Admissions & Records Office in the Student Services Building (SSB), Room 102, to request an exemption from Orientation and Counseling.

STEP 4: Meet with a Counselor, Register for Classes, & Take Your Photo ID

1st : meet with your academic counselor to talk about what you want to study. Together, you’ll create your Student Education Plan (SEP). Your SEP is an outline of the different courses you will need to take for your chosen academic program in the order you should take them over the next semester or two that fits your schedule and academic goals.

Not sure what you want to study? Let your counselor know! They will ask you about your interests, skills, and talents to guide you towards a career path where you can thrive.

2nd : register for your classes using your SEP as your guide. You will get an email in your LASC email account or a notification in your Student Information System (SIS) account letting you know what date you are able to start registering for classes.

3rd : get your picture taken for your Student ID Card! 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 Photo Identification Office, in Room 204 of the Student Services Building (SSB) with a copy of your fee receipt or class printout, and a photo ID, such as your driver’s license or state/work ID.
