LSC Students in common area

Lone Star College offers many financial aid packages to help students pay for their academic goals. To make it easier to apply for those benefits, the Department of Education recently launched the new simplified Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2024-2025 academic year.

“Lone Star College has lots of financial aid options to help families pay for tuition, fees, books, supplies and other related costs,” said Shannon Venezia, Ph.D., LSC senior associate vice chancellor, Financial Aid.

The new FAFSA form streamlines the process for students seeking financial assistance with more applicants having access to federal aid, including over 600,000 students who will receive Federal Pell Grants for the first time. LSC has dedicated advisors on standby to assist applicants with the new system, answer questions and ensure students receive their benefits on time.

“Completing the FAFSA application can be a little intimidating, but it takes less than an hour,” said Venezia. “With the new simplified form, it will be easier for students and families to apply. The new FAFSA is a big win for students.”

Students filling out the form should use LSC school code 011145.

Lone Star College offers various financial aid options like scholarships, grants and relief funds to help students pay for their education. Learn more at LoneStar.edu/Financial-Aid.
