  •  FAFSA & WASFA Information

    Why complete the FAFSA  (or WASFA if undocumented or immigrant)?
    • Required to be considered for financial aid for college, vocational or technical school/training
    • Required to receive the Washington State College Grant
    • Required to receive the College Bound Scholarship 
    Students can complete the FAFSA at https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa or the WASFA at https://wsac.wa.gov/wasfa.  
    Both the 2022-23 FAFSA and WASFA open on October 1. This will allow students to apply for college admission and financial aid at the same time. Students and families will use their 2021 tax information on either the FAFSA or WASFA (A person should complete the WASFA if they are undocumented or do not qualify for federal financial aid because of their immigration status).     The colleges that students apply to will use the information they provide on their financial aid applications to determine their eligibility for the scholarship. For more information regarding the scholarship requirements, visit www.collegebound.wa.gov.

    State Deadline
    Washington - Enroll as soon as possible after October 1. Awards are made until funds are depleted.
    You can complete the FAFSA up until the end of a school year – June 30, – to receive federal student aid, but don't wait. 
    College Deadline
    Check with the college(s) you are interested in attending. Each college or university has its own deadline for the FAFSA, known as the priority filing deadline. Completing your FAFSA by that date will help ensure you receive all the aid you're eligible for, including gift aid or loan options from the institution. Contact your school's financial aid office if you aren't sure when this is.  You may also want to ask your college about its definition of an application deadline - whether it is the date the college receives your FAFSA, or the date your FAFSA is processed.
