Financial Aid

Your financial aid will be awarded before the new June 1 priority enrollment date.

If your financial situation changed after you submitted your FAFSA, contact the Financial Aid Office at and ask about an “income adjustment.” They’ll guide you through the timeline and process.

If your needs change next fall, Evergreen has emergency funds available to students. You may need to complete an income adjustment with the Financial Aid Office which can be done any time during the academic year.


  • Evergreen housing has remained open during the COVID pandemic in a reduced capacity. We look forward to expanding capacity in fall 2022

Students participate in Playfair, where they play high-speed games designed to help them meet and connect with new friends.

Activate your student account

The online starting point on your journey to becoming a Greener is a website called My Evergreen. It's a central hub for updates on financial aid, housing, registration, and even jobs. Once you’re a registered student, many online tools for your programs will be there, too.

Discover your new home on campus

Living on campus links you directly to Evergreen’s vibrant community. Students who live on campus do better in classes and make more friends.

Pay your tuition deposit

Your non-refundable tuition deposit reserves your spot at Evergreen and allows you to select your programs when registration opens. After you activate your Evergreen account, you can pay your deposit online.

If you’re a transfer student, we’ll evaluate your transfer credits after you pay your deposit.

Dig deep for financial aid and scholarships

We encourage all students to apply for financial aid every year to help to reduce tuition costs. Financial aid comes in the form of grants, loans, scholarships, tuition waivers, work study, and tax credits.

Already filled out your FAFSA? By April 1st, you can check the status of your financial aid award at My Evergreen. If you haven't applied yet, it’s never too late to file your FAFSA or WAFSA.

Visit campus

Our Olympia campus must be seen to be believed. Evergreen features modern architecture nestled in more than 1,000 acres of spirited northwest forest. If you haven’t already, schedule a tour or attend the Admitted Student Open House.

Get a job on campus

Find jobs on campus regardless of financial aid status. The Student Employment Office is a resource for students seeking jobs and information about working on or off-campus, and the work-study program.

Immunization records

Evergreen is committed to the health and safety of all members of the campus community. The measles immunization form (PDF) is required from all students. The form also includes a waiver to complete if you were not vaccinated. Student Wellness Services provides additional information about immunization.

Finalizing your admission

Before you can begin at Evergreen, you’ll need to successfully complete any current coursework and submit final transcripts. You'll hear from us by email and postal mail if we need additional materials.
