Financial Aid is a partnership between the student and the college which provides funding to help individuals obtain their educational goals. Those receiving Financial Aid are expected to enroll in courses needed to achieve their educational objective, work hard and learn, and move progressively toward successful completion of their educational goal.
Work with the financial aid office to make sure you meet the requirements and deadlines for all the financial aid programs for which you are applying. File your financial aid application (FAFSA) as soon as possible after January 1st. Talk to the financial aid office about priority deadlines and other important dates. To apply for most financial aid, you'll need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA. Whether you apply on paper or electronically (www.fafsa.ed.gov), you should file only one FAFSA a year. Carefully review the instructions and complete the FAFSA accurately. Any mistakes will only delay the processing of your application. Be sure to keep a photocopy or a printout of your application. Also, save all the financial records you used to complete the FAFSA and your worksheets, because you may need them later if you're asked to verify any information.
The Lassen Community College school code is 001217. You will need this school code on your FAFSA application in order for your FAFSA information to be transmitted to the school. If you are a brand new student to Lassen Community College you must complete an Application for Admissions before your FAFSA will be transmitted. Within four weeks of filing your FAFSA, or sooner if you filed electronically, you'll receive your Student Aid Report, or SAR. The SAR will report the information you provided on the FAFSA. If you do not receive your SAR within four weeks, or if you need another copy, call 1.800.433.3243 or check online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.
