Financial Aid and Scholarships

It’s Never Too Late to Apply for Financial Aid

With all the disruption caused by COVID-19, college or career training after high school is more important than ever. Filing a financial aid application gives you more options for the future. There’s still time to apply for this coming fall.

Many families assume they won’t qualify for aid, but there’s more help available than ever before. The new Washington College Grant (WCG) gives more money to more students for more kinds of education after high school. WCG is available year-round—if you meet the eligibility requirements, you have money waiting for you. The only way to know for sure if you’ll qualify is to apply for financial aid.

In Washington, there are two ways to apply for financial aid. U.S. citizens and eligible non-citizens can apply with the federal FAFSA form. People who can't file the FAFSA—due to immigration status or other issues with federal aid—can apply for state aid, including WCG, using the WASFA.

Completing a FAFSA or WASFA financial aid application is a crucial first step toward college or career training. It’s not too late to apply for the 2021-22 academic year.
