Student Financial Aid Portal

You can now check your financial aid status, view and accept your awards, and find out if we need additional information from you online.

Green River does not use all of the available links on the Portal. Please refer to this page or contact Green River’s Financial Aid Office at (253) 833-9111 ext. 2449 or email Financial Aid Office with questions.

Student Financial Aid Portal Guidelines:

To use the Portal, you will need to enter your social security number (for User's Name) and a Password. If you were a student before 10/24/12, your Password will be your Green River PIN number. New students as of 10/25/12 will use their six digit birthday (mmddyy).

If you are having trouble logging into the Portal, you can call the Financial Aid Office at 253-833-9111, extension 2449 for assistance.

If you use the portal to accept financial aid awards, you accept responsibility for reading and understanding the following:

It is important to note that if you are Accepting a student loan award, or a loan has already been Certified, additional items may be required before the Financial Aid Office can request your loan funds.

  • Select "I am an undergraduate student" and follow the prompts

Information We Need From You

This section lists the documents or “items” that make up your financial aid application. Any documents or information that we are missing will be listed without a date in the Date Received column. If there is a date in the Date Received column, we have the required document or information for that item. If there is a down arrow next to a document, clicking on the arrow will open a new window and take you to our Financial Aid “Forms” page in order to print the document. Look for the name of the document in the list that matches the missing required form (paying attention to the “years”). The Forms page is a long one, so scroll down to view more forms.

Once your file has been completed, it will be placed in line to be reviewed. We anticipate that all files completed by the “priority deadline” of March 15th will have eligibility determined before payment for Fall Quarter tuition is due.

We know that it can take what feels like a long time for the Financial Aid Office to review and award files. Please be patient with us as we try our very best to process the large number of applications.

Additional Information

The Financial Aid Office will post notes to you in this section. Always check this area in addition to the “Information We Need From You” .
