The deadlines to submit Documents, Appeals and Loan Applications are:

2016 - 2017 Fall Semester - Deadline: December 15, 2016

2016 - 2017 Winter Semester - Deadline: February 2, 2017

2016 - 2017 Spring Semester - Deadline: June 1, 2017

In most cases, in order for your application to be processed without delay, each deadline must be met. It is very important for you to follow all instructions carefully and answer questions accurately. Delays in receiving financial aid award letters and disbursements are typically the result of missing and/or incorrect -incomplete information. Applicants will be considered as First Priority LAVC Financial Aid applicants by completing the steps below:

  • Your valid FAFSA must be processed by March 2nd
  • Complete the online process along with submitting all additional required or requested documents by May 1, 2016.

Each academic year we also recommend that you submit the FAFSA to the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) as soon as possible. The 2017-2018 will be available as early as October 1, 2016. If you are a CA resident and wish to apply for a Cal Grant, the CA Student Aid Commission (CSAC) must receive both your FAFSA and GPA Verification* by March 2. There is a second Cal Grant deadline of September 2, but funding is more limited.

*LAVC will automatically transmit your GPA Verification to the California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) by the deadline for those who meet specific criteria. It is advisable for students to contact the Financial Aid Office to see if they meet the criteria to have their GPA electronically transmitted and for other possible options.

Regardless of the academic year, if you miss the deadlines to apply or submit information and still wish to be considered for Financial Aid, please refer to LACCD's SIS system to find out what's necessary to complete your file. We cannot guarantee you will receive limited aid programs (Work Study, FSEOG) after the deadline(s) have passed however; we will make every attempt to assist you in funding your education.
