Welcome to the Laney College Financial Aid Department homepage. As our mission statement states above, our primary goal is to support you with financial aid and financial literacy resources and to ensure that you succeed at Laney College, whatever your educational pursuits may be.
On this page, you will find information about various types of financial aid, and financial literacy workshops and other resources to ensure you have a great financial aid experience at Laney College.
Please note that there are many internal and external procedures that govern all financial aid programs. Start early and please allow four to six weeks from the time you turn in all your documents to expect disbursement of your financial aid funds. The first step, however, is to complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Both new and continuing students must complete a new FAFSA every academic year. Below are a few steps to get started:
STEP 2: Get admitted and/or enroll at Laney College as your home school
NOTE: Students selected for verification and other categories of students will be required to turn in additional documents as requested by the US Department of Education. It is advised that students continuously monitor their passport and Peralta email accounts so that they may respond promptly to any request for information or documentation from the Financial Aid Department.
If you have any questions, please contact our office and we will be happy to assist you. A Financial Aid Specialist is assigned to you based on your last name. Thank you for visiting our webpage.
