HOUSTON (Oct. 14, 2022) – Lone Star College is paving the way for students to achieve their academic goals by offering educational opportunities such as associate degrees, workforce programs, transfer credits, continuing education courses and four baccalaureate programs. Registration for the 2022 winter mini-term and spring 2023 is now open.
To help students fund their education, LSC will host a Financial Aid and Lemonade Event at seven campuses Oct. 22 at noon. Financial aid advisors will assist applicants in completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA) application. They will also guide applicants to make the best financial decisions based on their individual needs.
“Our seasoned staff members will be available to answer all questions and walk students and their families through the financial aid process,” said Shannon Venezia, Ph.D., LSC Senior Associate Vice Chancellor Financial Aid.
LSC offers various financial aid options such as loans, work-study, grants, scholarships and relief funds. To fill out a FAFSA or TASFA application, which takes less than an hour to complete, students should be prepared to bring:
- Social Security number
- Alien registration number (if not a U.S. citizen)
- Federal income tax returns and related files
- FSA ID (username and password)
- Bank statements, investment records and untaxed income information, if applicable.
“Many students and families may not want to discuss financial aid or are scared to reach out to us. However, we are here to help them,” said Venezia. “We want students to access available funds to make their education as affordable as possible.”
At the Financial Aid and Lemonade Event, attendees will enjoy lemonade and snacks and have a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card. Visit LoneStar.edu/Lemonade to register and find the nearest event near you. The spring financial aid priority deadline is Nov. 1.
