FAFSA: The FAFSA is required to apply for federal financial assistance for higher education. Each year, the U.S. Department of Education provides more than $150 billion in grants, loans, and work-study funds to students in need. In addition, many states and colleges use the FAFSA data to determine eligibility for state and institutional aid, and some private financial aid providers may use FAFSA information to determine whether students qualify for their aid.

  • Have graduated from a Washington high school or obtained a GED (or will do so before beginning college)
  • Have lived in Washington for three years prior to, and continuously since, earning the high school diploma or equivalent
  • Sign an affidavit to file an application to become a permanent resident of the United States when eligible to apply

Whether you choose a four-year university, community college, vocational or technical school, this event can help you receive financial aid.
