Financial Aid
West Building, W209 (425) 739-8106
Most students are eligible to receive some form of federal, state, or institutional financial assistance if they meet basic eligibility requirements. Students do not need to be low income to receive some types of aid. Aid programs include: Federal Pell grants, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity grants (SEOG), Federal Direct Stafford and PLUS student loans, Washington College Grant (formerly the Washington State Need grant), state and federal work- study jobs, scholarships, and institutional aid. Depending on the time of the year, it may take weeks or months to process a file; therefore, it is important to submit all required paperwork on time and timely respond to all requests from the Financial Aid Office if they ask for more documentation. Please see the Financial Aid webpage for a message regarding current processing time. Students may check the status of their application online by using the Financial Aid Student Portal.
The Financial Aid department also assists Veterans applying for Veteran’s educational benefits. Learn more by visiting the Veteran Success Center Information Site.
