Your "financial need" is determined by Evergreen's Financial Aid Office after receipt and processing of the FAFSA and is used in the decisions about MiT awards. MiT cannot consider you for our awards until this information is on file. Because funds are limited, it is strongly suggested that you submit your FAFSA to the processor by January 25, 2018, so that a fully processed FAFSA is received by Evergreen by February 1, 2018. These awards are provided in addition to other need-based financial aid (such as grants or loans) offered through The Evergreen State College Financial Aid Office (Library 1200J, 360-867-6205). BY SUBMITTING MY APPLICATION, I AGREE THAT THE INFORMATION ON THIS APPLICATION IS ACCURATE AND TRUE, AND THAT THE WORDS, CONCEPTS AND IDEAS IN THE ESSAYS ARE MY OWN.
