  • FAFSA, FAFSA, FAFSA......Or WASFA, WASFA, WASFA!  Opens on October 1!

    Seniors, if you are applying to colleges/universities and tech/trade schools you should be applying for Financial aid. Financial aid is money that is available to students to help cover the cost of attending a college/tech or trade school (tuition, fees, books, room/meals, supplies). Filling out the 2022-23 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is the best way to apply for financial aid. For most financial aid, a student does not need to know where they are going to school. The earlier you apply…….the BEST shot you will have at receiving the most financial aid.

    The FAFSA is the method the federal government uses to determine how much you and your family can afford to contribute to your education, and then how much in grants, scholarships, loans and work study the federal government will offer you the student. It is also how the college you will be attending, determines what need-based scholarships and grants, as well as loans and work study they can offer you.

    If you’re not eligible to submit the FAFSA and you’re a Washington resident (i.e. if an undocumented student), you can fill out the Washington Application for State Financial Aid (WASFA), which will be used instead to determine state and university need-based financial aid options.

    Biggest misconception is that students are not going to fill out the FAFSA, because they won’t be eligible for financial aid... this may be true regarding receiving aid from the Federal Government, but the FAFSA is used by colleges to determine Merit /Need-based/other scholarships. It's time to fill out your FAFSA/WASFA!


    Need help filing? Check out the Financial Aid page for more FAFSA & WASFA information!

  • SAT/ACT Testing

    Washington’s 2-/4-year colleges have stated they will not use the ACT/SAT exam score for college admission or scholarships next fall. Some colleges have decided to drop the requirement going forward. This website includes a sortable list of all the test optional colleges in the U.S. This list is updated frequently.

    Please check the college's website that you are planning on applying to, to see if they are requiring one of these test for admission or for any of their scholarships. Deciding to take one of these tests is now truly the student's decision!

    Terms to know:

    Test Optional: Students may choose to submit test scores to strengthen an application. Submission of a test score does not disadvantage or advantage students in the admission review process if a student chooses not to submit. In place of a test score, students who choose to apply as test optional will be required to submit additional and alternative measures of college readines.

    Test Blind: Test scores are not looked at or considered at any point in the admissions review process, even if a student chooses to submit a test score. No additional, alternative measure of college readiness is required in place of a test score.

    Test Not Required: Test scores are not considered in the admissions review process, even if a student chooses to submit a test score. However, test scores are considered for placement, entry into Honors program, and/or scholarship awards.
