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.

Flexibility

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 brings you enormous possibilities towards a flourishing career.

Achievable

LASC prides itself on 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.

Affordable

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! – 7 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 (cccapply.org), 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: Attend An Orientation

Attend an online orientation to receive necessary information on academic programs, policies and procedures, and student support services. Visit here to complete an online orientation.

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 3: Meet with a Counselor

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 www.lasc.edu/counseling 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

  • View your grades

STEP 5: Apply for Financial Aid

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 lascfinaid@lasc.edu 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

STEP 6: Pay your health fee, purchase a permit, and pick-up your fee receipt

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

STEP 7: Obtain Your Free Student I.D Card

Due to Covid-19, the campus is closed and we will not be able to issue student I.D. cards until we re-open. 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 IDCard, 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. Students enrolled in Concurrent Enrollment programs may bring their school-issued I.D. cards along with a printout of their schedule to obtain an LASC Student I.D. card.
