Financial Aid

Financial Aid funds are available for students to help them pay for their educational expenses. Most types of financial aid come from federal and state programs, which require completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Financial award funds are distributed based on a student’s demonstrated need. In addition to this, there are other aid programs that award funds based on financial need or merit.

Overview

Return to Title IV Funding

The Financial Aid Office is required by federal statute to recalculate federal financial aid eligibility for students who withdraw, drop out, or are dismissed. Prior to completing 60% of a payment period or term, the federal Title IV financial aid programs must be recalculated in these situations. Long Beach City College will use the date of complete withdrawal or drop to determine the amount of federal aid that is “earned” based on the amount of time the student was enrolled.
