Need Determination
Need determination is the amount of assistance received based on the student’s demonstrated need, determined by the completion of a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Attendance Costs
Student budgets estimate expenses for a nine-month academic year, or three quarters. This budget determines a student’s financial need. Budgets include standard, or average, expenses for a student’s cost of attendance. Indirect educational expenses (room/board, transportation, food, etc.) are based on averages for Washington State students; as determined by the Washington Financial Aid Association. Direct educational expenses are an average of tuition, fees, and other college costs.
Financial Aid Deadlines
To receive priority consideration for funding, students must meet posted deadlines. Some financial aid funding is limited and the office cannot guarantee funds will be available. The deadline will be met when all applicable, required items are received by the Financial Aid office by posted deadlines. Applications turned in after the posted deadline will be considered for funding during the next quarterly deadline.
Application processing deadlines:

Students who receive federal financial aid are subject to the federal Return to Title IV Funds regulations. These regulations state that aid eligibility for a student receiving federal aid must be recalculated under most circumstances if the student withdraws from all classes early or ceases to attend during the quarter. Some students may owe a repayment of funds received. These regulations and any resulting amounts owed are separate from and may be in addition to the college’s own tuition refund policy.
