Applying for Aid

Check on the Status of your Financial Aid in ctcLink

The Financial Aid Portal will not be available to students after spring quarter. Check on the "tasks" and "message center" tiles in ctcLink to see what steps you need to take before your aid can be processed. Once your aid is processed, click on the "financial aid" tile in ctcLink to view your aid offer.

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 re-apply to the college

2. Submit aid applications

FAFSA/WASFA 2021-2022 (Fall 2021 - Spring 2022)
FAFSA/WASFA 2022-2023 (Summer 2022 - Spring 2023)

 3. If you have submitted your 2021-2022 FAFSA or WASFA for the current award year, please check the Financial Aid Portal for the status of your application.

If you submitted your FAFSA or WASFA in October, November, or December for the 2022-2023 award year, log into ctcLink after the new year to check your application status.

4. Receive your Financial Aid

  • Receive instructions on how to select a refund preference in the mail and in your student email from BankMobile Disbursements. If you have not received instructions from BankMobile by the time you receive your award letter, please contact our office. For more information about BankMobile, visit this link:
  • Receive your financial aid award letter in the mail and email
  • 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 Disbursements.

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. Please connect with our office if you are struggling to complete your clases before dropping or withdrawing to discuss its potential impacts.


6. Re-New Your Aid

Students must re-submit their FAFSA/WASFA every award year with updated tax and income information to maintain their eligibility for aid. Both applications become available on October 1st each year to apply for aid for the following year.


Financial Aid Office Closed on Monday, June 20th and Tuesday, June 21st

The Financial Aid Office is closed on Monday, June 20th to observe Juneteenth and on Tuesday, June 21st for a mandatory staff training.
