  • Have a high school diploma or high school equivalency
  • Have a valid Social Security Number (unless you are applying for the WA Dream Act Funding)
  • Not owe a repayment on a grant or be in default on a student loan
  • Have financial need as determined by the Federal need analysis

Our financial aid office is currently experiencing delays in replying to emails and voicemails due to a high number of inquiries, files to process, and new academic year transition. Our team will do our best to serve and assist you in a timely manner.
