LASC offers a self-paced computerized assessment placement test. Students receive an assessment summary that may be used to select their courses and to plan their educational and career goals. Course recommendations are advisory and should be discussed with a counselor. The Student Services and Support Programs (SSSP) center provides services to complete the Prerequisite/ Co-Requisite Challenge Exams and course prerequisite/co-requisites clearances. The center offers Accuplacer for English and math placement “Tests of Adult Basic Education (TABE)” non-credit courses. This test will measure the student’s grade level in Language, Math and Reading. This is not a pass/fail test. This is a timed test. Testing is available through department referral. Please see the SSSP Office for further information.
All students that have taken the Assessment test will be allowed to retest once a term, not to exceed four times a year; as long as they have not completed a course in either the corresponding Math or English course sequence. All test scores are valid for two years. Please be prepared as retesting policies are strictly enforced and are subject to change. Assessment placement results from other California Community Colleges are accepted within the last two years.
After participation in the assessment placement process, students will meet with a counselor and receive an abbreviated student educational plan. All students should meet with a counselor during the semester to develop a comprehensive student educational plan. All students who have not declared an educational goal and students who are enrolled in pre-collegiate basic skills courses are highly encouraged to meet with a counselor to develop a student educational plan.
Early Alert provides mid-semester evaluation and feedback of a student’s academic progress according to their classroom instructors. Referrals to support services are made when needed or requested. Student Success Center workshops are offered throughout the semester. Exemptions (Title 5 Section 55532)
Exemption from core matriculation services (assessment, orientation, and counseling) are available if the student:
- Has completed an associate degree or higher;
- Has enrolled at the college for a reason other than career development or advancement, transfer, attainment or a degree or certificate, or completion of a basic skills or English as a Second Language course sequence;
- Has completed these services at another community college within a time period as identified by the district;
- Has enrolled at the college solely to take a course that is legally mandated for employment as defined in Education Code section 55000;
- Has enrolled at the college as a special admit student pursuant to Education Code section 76001.
For more information, contact a Student Support Services Program representative in their office at Student Services Building (SSB), Room 204, or visit http://www.lasc.edu/students/matriculation/matriculation_process.html
Only students who have been admitted to the college and are in approved active status may attend classes. Students should attend every meeting of all classes for which they register. To avoid being dropped from a class, students should contact the instructor when they are absent for emergency reasons.
LASC Student Attendance Policy
- An instructor may exclude a student who is absent for more hours than the class meets per week or 20% of the total class hours;
- In addition, an instructor may equate three or more late arrivals or early departures from class as an absence for purposes of class attendance;
- Student attendance expectations, including this policy, must be clearly indicated on the Course Syllabus. Instructors must apply their attendance policy in a consistent manner.
Please Note: Students who are pre-registered in a class and miss the first meeting may lose their right to a place in a class.
Students are responsible for dropping a class that they stop attending. If the class is not dropped, the student may receive an “F” in that class and be responsible for the enrollment fee. Any drops or exclusions that occur between the fourth week and the 12th week will result in a “W” on the student’s record. Drops are not permitted beyond the 12th week. A grade (“A”, “B”, “C”, “D”, “F”, “INC”, “P”, or “NP”) will be assigned to students who are enrolled past the 12th week even if they stop attending class.
Students wishing to drop one or more classes must do so through the online registration system at www.LASC.edu.
It is the student’s responsibility to officially drop from class through the website or in person. Students must drop by the end of the second week of semester-length classes to avoid fees. Any drops or exclusions that occur after the no-penalty drop date (under last day to drop without a “W”) and up to 75% of the time the class is scheduled will result in a “W” on the student’s record, which will be included in the determination of progress probation. Withdrawals are not permitted beyond 75% of class meeting time. A grade (A, B, C, D, F, P, INC, or NP) will be assigned to students who are enrolled past the last day to drop even if they stop attending class, except in cases of extenuating circumstances. After the last day to drop students may withdraw from class upon petition demonstrating extenuating circumstances and after consultation with the appropriate faculty.
Military withdrawal is available for students who are members of an active or reserve military service, and who receive orders compelling a withdrawal from courses. Students requesting military withdrawal must file a student petition and include supporting documentation.
Course Repetition to Improve Sub-standard Grades
No specific course or categories of courses shall be exempt from course repetition. This policy applies to courses taken at colleges within the Los Angeles Community College District. Credit by examination may not be used to remove a substandard grade.
First Course Repetition to Remove a Sub-standard Grade
Upon completion of a repeated course, the highest grade earned will be computed in the accumulated grade point average and the student’s academic record so annotated. All grades awarded will show on student’s permanent records to insure a true and complete academic history. It is the student’s responsibility to file a petition for removal of the substandard grade.
Second Course Repetition to Remove a Sub-standard Grade
Upon completion of the second repetition, the grade used in computing the student’s cumulative grade point average shall be the highest grade earned, and the student’s record so annotated. The two lower substandard grades will not be used in the computation of the grade point average. All grades awarded will show on student’s permanent records to insure a true and complete academic history. It is the student’s responsibility to file a petition for removal of the substandard grade.
Third Course Repetition to Remove a Sub-standard Grade
A student may repeat the same course for a third time provided the student has:
- Received two substandard grades for the same district course;
- Filed a petition specifying the course(s) to be repeated and stating the extenuating circumstances upon which the petition is based. “Extenuating circumstances” are verified cases of accidents, illness, or other circumstances beyond the control of the student;
- The petition is approved by the Department Chairperson. If denied, the petition is forwarded to an administrator for review.
Upon completing the third repeat, the grade earned will not be used in the computation of the grade point average. All grades awarded will show on student’s permanent records to insure a true and complete academic history.
Course Repetition: Special Circumstances
Repetition of courses for which substandard work (less than “C”) has not been recorded shall be permitted only upon advance petition of the student and with written permission of the College President or designee based on a finding that circumstances exist which justify such repetition. In such repetition under special circumstances, the student’s permanent academic record shall be annotated in such a manner that all work remains legible. Grades awarded for repetition under special circumstances shall not be counted in calculating a student’s grade-point average.
Note: No fourth repeat unless military service or natural disaster.
Student will be notified of an Administrative Exclusion from a class if the student is enrolled in a class under above circumstances and has not filed a petition in advance and received approval. In this case, the student may file a petition to repeat under special circumstances.
Course Repetition and Activity Repetition
Certain courses in the Catalog may be repeated for additional unit credit. These courses allow the student an expanded educational experience each time the student enrolls in the course. Enrollment in these courses is limited in any similar activity to a maximum of three repeats for a total of four (4) enrollments, regardless of the repeatability of individual courses. The activity limitation also applies to courses, which are not repeatable in themselves but for which similar activities exist.
NOTE: Whenever the student’s record is reviewed for the purpose of determining his or her unit credits, all of the student’s record is reviewed, not just the course work since the beginning of Fall 1983.
Students should file a petition form when they are requesting assistance with: academic renewal, course substitution, and enrollment in more than 19 units, return from disqualification (dismissal), and other related concerns. Specific petition forms are available for course repetition to improve substandard grades, grade change, and lining out successfully repeated courses. The petition forms may be obtained and filed in the Office of Admissions and Records.
Los Angeles Southwest College has a full array of Title IV programs and California State Programs. Financial assistance may include grants, loans, federal work-study, LASC Foundation scholarships, as well as privately supported scholarships.
If you decide to take out a loan, make sure you understand who is making the loan and the terms and conditions of the loan. Student loans can come from the federal government or from private sources such as a bank or financial institution. Loans made by the federal government, called federal student loans, usually offer borrowers lower interest rates and have more flexible repayment options than loans from banks or other private sources. Learn more about the differences between federal and private student loans.
For each program, information must include [34 C.F.R. § 668.42(b)]:
Rights and responsibilities of students receiving financial assistance, to include [34 C.F.R. § 668.42(c) except where indicated:
Prospective or enrolled students who have questions about obtaining financial aid should call the Los Angeles Southwest College Financial Aid Office at 323-241-5338. For information about office hours, visit the Financial Aid Office website.
To receive Federal and most State financial aid, an applicant must:
- Be a U.S. Citizen or an eligible non-citizen (permanent resident, resident alien, refugee, asylee); NOTE: State of California programs may have a less restrictive residency requirement for non-U.S. citizens;
- Be enrolled at Los Angeles Southwest College.
- Be officially enrolled in a degree, certificate, or eligible transfer program in a declared major at an LACCD college;
- Be making satisfactory academic progress, according to financial aid policy;
- Have financial need as demonstrated through application on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA;
- Not be in default on a Federal student loan or owe a repayment on a Federal student grant;
- Have a high school diploma, a GED (General Equivalency Diploma), their equivalent, or demonstrate an ability to benefit from a college education by passing the required Department of Education approved ‘Ability to Benefit’ test offered by the Assessment and Tutorial Center;
- Be registered with the Selective Service (unless not required to register);
- Supply an accurate Social Security Number and name;
- Provide all documentation requested by the financial aid office.
Los Angeles Southwest College has a full array of aid programs. Some are need-based and some are non-need based as determined by the information provided and verified on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
How eligibility for need-based aid is determined and how need-based is awarded
Students are packaged for financial aid (given financial aid from several of the programs for which a student is eligible) based on the student’s financial need. Financial need is determined by a student’s Expected Family Contribution (EFC) (computed from information provided on the FAFSA) as compared to LASC’s Cost of Attendance (COA). Those who have a positive number remaining after the EFC is subtracted from the Cost of Attendance may qualify for some need-based aid sources. To meet federal regulations, LASC defines the neediest students as those whose EFC = $0.
There are two financial aid disbursements per semester. In order to received disbursements, a student must select their preferences with BankMobile. For more information on specific dates of distribution by semester, visit the Financial Aid Dates and Deadlines website.
The National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) is the U.S. Department of Education’s central database for student financial aid records. Federal loans disbursed to students or parents will be submitted to NSLDS and will be accessible by guarantee agencies, lenders, and institutions determined to be authorized users of the data system. Student and parent borrowers can track and manage their federal student loans and grants online at the National Student Loan Data System website. The secured site displays information on loans and grants, including amounts, outstanding balances, and status. Student and parent borrowers can also find contact information for their loan servicer.
Information regarding the various deferments available to student and parent loan borrowers is available at the Department of Education website. The information is located under “Managing Repayment” and then click on “Trouble Making Payments?”
Generally, borrowers will have from 10 to 25 years to repay their loan, depending on the repayment plan they choose. The loan servicer will notify the borrower of the date the first payment is due. If a repayment plan is not chosen by the borrower, the borrower will be placed on the standard repayment plan, with fixed monthly payments for up to 10 years. Repayment plans can be changed at any time by contacting the loan servicer. Information about standard repayment, extended repayment, graduated repayment, income contingent repayment (not available for parent PLUS loans), and income-based repayment can be found at the Department of Education website under “Managing Repayment”. Click “Repayment Plans & Calculators”.
The Federal Government requires first-time student borrowers to complete loan entrance counseling to ensure that the student borrower understands the responsibilities and obligations they are assuming. In order to provide the required comprehensive information on the terms and conditions of the loan and the borrower’s responsibilities, first-time student loan borrowers at Los Angeles Southwest College are required to complete entrance counseling.
Loan Exit Counseling
All students who received a loan must complete a Mandatory Online Loan Exit Counseling Workshop. The loan exit counseling will provide valuable counseling and important information regarding repayment, deferment, and default prevention. Please visit the National Student Loan Data System website to conduct an online exit counseling.
Any student applying for a private education loan at Los Angeles Southwest College must complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form with the college in order to ensure that all waivers and grants are available to the student, as well as to encourage students to make use of low-interest loans available through the Department of Education (subsidized if eligible). Student borrowers are counseled to compare the terms and conditions of Department of Education loans with the terms and conditions of private education loans to determine the more favorable borrowing option. Upon request, LASC will provide the self-certification form for private education loans required under Sec. 128(e)(3) of the Truth in Lending Act (15 U.S.C. 1638(e)(3) and the information required to complete the form, to the extent that Los Angeles Southwest College possesses the information.

ENROLLMENT FEE REFUND POLICY
For full-term courses: a student may receive a full refund for classes dropped (and refunds requested from the Business Office) through the end of the second week of instruction. There will be no refunds for classes dropped after that, unless a class is canceled or rescheduled by the college administration. After the second week of classes, the student may drop a course and use the fee previously paid that semester to add another class. Therefore, LASC advises that the student drop and add at the same time.
For short-term as well as Summer and Winter Intersession courses, students may receive a full refund for classes dropped (and refunds requested in the Business Office) through the end of a period of time equal to 10% of total class time usually during the first week of classes. There will be no refunds after that, unless a class is canceled or rescheduled by the administration. Students are required to request refunds at the Business Office at the time they drop their classes even if dropping by telephone. If college expenses have been paid by federal financial aid funds, any refund due will revert to the financial aid program rather than to the student. Expenses paid by financial aid may be subject to a special pro-rata refund calculation.
Contact the Financial Aid Administrator or the College Financial Administrator for specific information regarding refund calculations for financial aid recipients.
Requirements and procedures for officially withdrawing [C.F.R. § 668.43(a)(3)] :
Summary of requirements related to return of Title IV funds (grant and loan aid) [C.F.R. § 668.43(a)(4)] :
Return to Title IV
Students who receive federal financial aid and then withdraw from ALL approved classes at their financial aid processing school may have to repay some or all of the federal funds they received.
A student’s eligibility for financial aid is based upon their enrollment. The Higher Education Amendment of 1998 governs the Return to Title IV Funds Policy for a student who completely withdraws from a period of enrollment (i.e., semester). These rules assume that a student “earns” aid based on his/her semester enrollment. “Unearned” aid, other than Federal Work-Study, must be returned. Unearned aid is the amount of federal financial aid disbursed that exceeds the amount the student has earned. Unearned aid may be subject to repayment.
During the first 60% of the semester enrollment, a student earns aid in direct proportion to the length of time of his/her enrollment. The percentage of time the student remained enrolled is the percentage of aid for that period for which the student earned his/her aid. A student who remains enrolled beyond the 60% point of the semester enrollment has earned all of his/her aid for the period.
If a student owes a repayment, the student will be notified by email. The repayment may include institutional charges. The student has 45 days from the date of the notification to repay. A hold will be placed on the student’s academic and financial aid records. The hold will prevent the student from receiving college services and will jeopardize future financial aid eligibility. Unpaid overpayments will be reported to the U.S. Department of Education for collection.
It is advised that the student contact the Financial Aid Office before withdrawing from all of his/her classes so the student understands the results of his/her actions. Please refer to the college schedule of classes or the college catalog for the policy regarding the refunding of enrollment fees and nonresident tuition.

– from 2009 HIPAA Privacy Notice PDF (LACCD) – Page 2
This policy is based upon the federal and state laws that require the District to notify students and employees that the unlawful manufacturing, distribution, dispensing, possession or use of illicit drugs and alcohol is prohibited in the workplace and on college premises. Students, faculty and staff that violate this policy may be subject to discipline up to and including termination or expulsion, and may also face civil and/or criminal penalties. The abuse of alcohol and drugs can have serious health consequences and there are Local Counseling and Rehabilitation Program references available as well. Further information about these items can be seen in the appendix to the below policy.
Information to be included in drug prevention materials for students and employees:
A school must provide the following in its materials:
- Information on preventing drug and alcohol abuse;
- Standards of conduct that clearly prohibit, at a minimum, the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of drugs and alcohol by students and employees on the school’s property or as part of the school’s activities;
- A description of the sanctions under local, state, and federal law for unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol;
- A description of any drug and alcohol counseling, treatment, or rehabilitation programs available to students and employees;
- A description of the health risks associated with the use of illicit drugs and alcohol; and
- A clear statement that the school will impose sanctions on students and employees for violations of the standards of conduct (consistent with local, state, and federal law) and a description of these sanctions, up to and including expulsion, termination of employment, and referral for prosecution.
LASC may include this information in publications such as student or employee handbooks, provided that these publications are distributed to each student and employee. Merely making drug prevention materials available to those who wish to take them is not sufficient. The college must use a method that will reach every student and employee, such as the method used to distribute grade reports or paychecks. The school must distribute these materials annually. If new students enroll or new employees are hired after the initial distribution for the year, the school must make sure that they also receive the materials.
