Admission Instructions

Apply for Financial Aid

An admissions application must be on file in order for West Hills College to receive your financial aid application. If you have not done so already please apply for admission first.

Step 1: Apply for Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID
Hand on Paper

Get your Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID

Please visit the FSA ID Web Site and follow the instructions on this site. Your FSA ID is your electronic signature. You will use it to sign your FAFSA online.

If you are a dependent student, one of your parents also needs to apply for an FSA ID. You can fill out a FAFSA and submit it without an FSA ID. You simply need to print and mail the signature page. However, the mailed signature requires more time to process than the electronic signature. Your FAFSA will not be complete until it has all required signatures.

Step 2: Complete the FAFSA

Visit the FAFSA Web Site. If it is your first time select “Fill Out a FAFSA.” If you are a returning user, you can select “Fill Out a Renewal FAFSA.” In order to complete a renewal you will need your FSA ID.

West Hills College will receive your FAFSA information if our school code is one of the six school codes you list on your FAFSA. The school code for the Coalinga Campus is 001176. The school code for the Lemoore Campus is 041113.

If you run into any trouble when completing the online FAFSA you can call the Federal Student Aid Information Center at 1-800-4-FED-AID. If you require further assistance you can come into any of our financial aid offices and receive additional help.
