Tuition & Fees
WLAC remains one of the most affordable college nationwide. To determine a student's financial need, the financial aid office will take into consideration the student's cost of attendance and expected family contribution (see Cost of Attendance table below). For more details on fees, see the college catalog. Fees may be paid online via the Student Information System.
|Direct Educational Costs
(paid directly to the college)
|Indirect Living Costs
(NOT paid directly to the college)
*Books and supplies costs will vary depending on course, new, used, rental and e-books
The financial aid office calculates the student's unmet need/cost, or how much need-based aid can be awarded, by subtracting the EFC* from the cost of attendance. As different resources of financial aid are awarded, the unmet need decreases:
Cost Of Attendance - (EFC** + Financial Aid Awarded) = Unmet Financial Need
The goal of the financial aid office is to provide students with financial aid resources to minimize their unmet costs. If you are a financial aid student at LACCD, you may access your SIS Portal to see your cost of attendance, financial aid awards, and your financial aid unmet need. See the charts below to estimate your cost of attendance depending your housing and residency status:
