Second, Apply for an FSA ID. Visit the FSA ID Web Site and follow the instructions. An FSA ID is a username and password that you must use to log in to the FAFSA. Your FSA ID is used to sign legally binding documents electronically. It has the same legal status as a written signature. Do not give your FSA ID to anyone. Sharing it could put you at risk for identity theft. Dependent students will need to have one of his or her legal parents sign the student’s FAFSA. The parent will need to apply for his or her own FSA ID. If your FSA ID is lost or stolen, you must update your username and password by selecting “Edit My FSA ID” from the log in page. For all other issues regarding your FSA ID, contact the Federal Student Aid Information Center at 1-800-4-FED AID (1-800-433-3243).

Third, begin and complete the FAFSA. Visit the FAFSA Web Site. If it is your first time, select “Start a New FAFSA.” If you are a returning user, you can select “Login.” West Hills College Lemoore will receive your FAFSA information if the school code is listed on your FAFSA. 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 (1-800-433-3243). If you require further assistance, you can come into the WHCL financial aid office and receive additional help. We see students on a walk-in basis; no appointment is needed.
