For students who fill out the WASFA-Washington Application for State Financial Aid:
This application is for low-income, non-citizen students who meet the same residency requirement under HB 1079, to become eligible for the Washington State Need Grant. The application is available now and must be completed by Evergreen's March 1st deadline. For more information, the application, and process requirements can be found by going to:

Evergreen’s financial aid priority deadline is March 1, 2015.

Your official FAFSA must be received AND processed by the Federal Processor no later than March 1, 2015. Your FAFSA cannot be rejected by the Processor for any reason to be considered official, and must include Evergreen’s school code (008155). Only students meeting this deadline will be considered for priority financial aid packaging. Only admitted students are processed for financial aid, so apply for admission to the College early.

Once you are admitted to Evergreen, activate your Evergreen email address and monitor for messages and requirements from financial aid.

FAFSA applications will become available to Evergreen around mid-February. New students who filed their FAFSA on-time, are admitted, and have no outstanding eligibility issues should receive an award offer mid to late March. Award offers are made on a rolling basis according to when students filed their FAFSA and are admitted to the College.

Please read all correspondence from the College carefully and respond in a timely manner. A delay in providing us necessary documentation in order to determine eligibility could delay your financial aid offer and/or possibly move the student out of the eligible queue for priority or on-time packaging.

*Students who are provisionally admitted or admitted as a special undergraduate are not considered fully admitted and are not eligible for financial aid.
