Laredo College Financial Aid Office hosts Super Saturdays

To assist Laredo College students and high school students, the LC Financial Aid and Veterans Affairs Center will host Super Saturdays beginning December 11 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Ft. Macintosh campus. Students can meet with financial aid representatives at this random event to begin the financial aid process, apply for a scholarship and even find jobs. All services are completely free.

The 2022-2023 FAFSA application is now open for prospective and current students. Any current and prospective student interested in enrolling at Texas’ #1 Community College for the 2022-2023 academic year must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Texas Application for Government Financial Aid (TAFSA). US citizens and eligible non-citizens may apply for the FAFSA. Immigrants who have graduated from a Texas high school, have a GED or are recipients of DACA, can apply for the TAFSA.

LC Super Saturdays will begin with fun activities, gifts, and light refreshments while getting a chance to learn how important it is to apply for financial aid that can pay for student education, and will be assisted in the verification and further process for obtaining federal grants. The FSA ID is critical to initiating the FAFSA 2022-2023 application, which covers costs for Fall 2022, Wintermester 2022, Spring 2023, Maymester 2023, and Summer Sessions I & II 2023.

In order to apply for financial aid, students need the following information:

Student and parent FSA ID usernames and passwords.

The full name of the student and parents as it appears on the Social Security number.

The current permanent address.

The email address of the student and the guardian(s).

Date of birth of the student and the parent(s).

Student and parent social security numbers.

Driver’s license number, if available.

Today’s parents were married/married, separated, divorced or widowed.

USCIS Foreign Student Registration Number.

2020 federal income tax returns such as IRS 1040, W2s, and/or 1099 forms are required for the applicant and spouse, if married, or for the applicant’s parent(s) if they are a dependent student

DACA student and parent number, if applicable, or Social Security number if both parents are eligible citizens

Once students have completed their application, the FAFSA will notify them via email if it has been successfully submitted. The applicant must follow up with the Financial Aid Office within three weeks or check for any status updates in the LC or PASPORT email.

If incoming or returning students need personal assistance, our financial aid representatives will help through the FAFSA process to relieve students from the stress of applying. Representatives of the Veterans Affairs Center will be available to assist our veterans and/or their dependents in applying for VA educational benefits.

FAFSA and TAFSA applications are not the only services that will be available to those who qualify. LC will provide guidance on scholarship availability, on-campus employment, and more.
