Financial Aid

Evergreen aims to support all students with financial need. Loans, grants, scholarships, awards, tuition waivers and work-study positions can help offset the cost of tuition. 

Most aid is need-based and requires filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)eligible U.S. citizens or the Washington Application for State Financial Aid (WASFA) for eligible non-citizen Washington residents.

Incoming Master in Teaching Program Students

In addition to submitting a FAFSA or WASFA for 2023-24, you will need to submit one for the 2022-2023 academic year as soon as you can to ensure you can apply for aid for your first quarter in the program. Contact for questions or concerns.

Your official FAFSA or WASFA must be received and processed no later than February 1. In order for your FAFSA to be considered official, it cannot be rejected by a processor for any reason. Include Evergreen’s school code 008155.

While FAFSA or WASFA forms can be submitted after February 1, applicants may not qualify for as much aid as on-time filers.

FAFSA applications received after February 1st will not be considered for Evergreen Need Grants or available tuition waivers, but will still be considered for scholarships and loans. WASFA eligible students will only be reviewed for Washington state funding resources and are not eligible for federal loan aid.

Students who submit their WASFA and meet the February 1st deadline will be considered for the Evergreen Need Grants, tuition waivers, scholarships and fellowships.

For questions about FAFSA or WASFA, student loans, or Evergreen Need Grants, contact the Financial Aid Office at or (360) 867-6205. For questions about Master in Teaching program scholarships, contact
