First, apply for admission to West Hills College. Visit the Online Admissions Application and follow the instructions. An admissions application must be on file in order for West Hills College to receive your financial aid application.
|Second, apply for a PIN. Visit the PIN Web Site and follow the instructions. You can choose to receive your PIN either by email or mail. Keep it with you in a safe place. Your PIN 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 a PIN. You can fill out a FAFSA and submit it without a PIN. 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.|
|Thrid, begin and 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 FAFSA PIN. 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.|
