Program Limits/Educational Goals
Financial Aid will pay for the completion of up to TWO educational goals. This means any combination of certificates, Associates degrees, or transfer program. For example, a student may pursue one Associates degree and a transfer program, but not three educational goals.
Note: Students must be strategic with their units as combining some Associates degrees and transfer programs may exceed 90 units, putting the student into disqualification. Talk to an academic counselor for advice on completing your program(s) of study within 150% time-frame.
Changing Majors/Adding Majors
Students are discouraged from changing their majors and educational goals more than once (certificate, Associates degree, transfer), particularly when the student has accumulated more than 45 units. In most cases, students that reach 150% of the time frame established for their goal may not be allowed to change majors or add new educational goals and continue getting financial aid.
Students are required to submit all official transcripts from colleges and universities attended outside of the LACCD to the Admissions Office. In some cases, financial aid may request unofficial transcripts from other institutions in order to evaluate financial aid appeals.
