Applying for Aid

Applying for Aid

Here are the steps to follow to receive your financial aid in a timely manner. Receiving financial aid is a five-step process for most students.

 

1. Apply for admission to Green River College

Returning students who have been away for a quarter or more must notify Enrollment Services by call, 253-833-9111, ext. 2500, or in person. 

2. Submit aid applications

2018-2019 Academic Year (Fall 2018 - Summer 2019)

  • Submit online FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) or WASFA (Washington Application for State Financial Aid). Which application should I complete?
  • In February 2018, we will notify you of your application status via Green River student email.  You can also check your application status from the Student Financial Aid Portal.
  • We no longer require Supplemental Financial Aid Applications.

2017-2018 Academic Year (Fall 2017 - Summer 2018)

3. Log into your Student Financial Aid Portal

Check the Financial Aid Portal to review your financial aid status. The portal is our primary communication tool with you regarding your financial aid.

4. Receive your Financial Aid

  • Receive a Refund Selection Kit in the mail from BankMobile Disbursements. Follow the kit's directions to select your disbursement method. If you have not received the BankMobile's Refund Selection Kit by the time you receive your award letter, please contact our office.
  • Receive your financial aid award letter in the mail and email; posted on the portal under the "Award" section as well.
  • Accept/decline the offered awards through the portal or by returning the award letter to our office.
  • After your tuition has been paid, you receive your remaining financial aid through BankMobile.

5. Manage your Financial Aid

In order to remain eligible to receive financial aid, you must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP); failure to do so will result in a loss and/or repayment of aid.
