You should now see a webpage that shows your CURRENT Educational Goal(s). Your Initial Goal is usually obtained from your Admissions Application. Goal 1, Goal 2, and Goal 3 (if any are listed for you) come from other sources, including your academic counselor, DegreeWorks (used at some campuses in the LACCD), and from updates you provide on this website.

We will use your Initial Goal for determining your status. But, if your Initial Goal is an INELIGIBLE GOAL, you should update your Educational Goal by selecting an appropriate goal in the drop down menu (shown below, with an arrow pointing DOWN at the area where you select a new goal). Once you have selected a new goal, click the Submit button (as shown below, with an arrow pointing to the right).



That's all you will need to do. Your information will be sent electronically to the Financial Aid Office at your selected college in the LACCD, whereby we will review your new information. If your academic goal is an ELIGIBLE goal, you will not need to do anything else regarding your Educational Goal status.
