Financial Aid Deadlines

Financial Aid Priority Funding Processing Dates

Green River College’s Priority Funding Processing Deadline for Fall Quarter 2024 was June 30, 2024

Even if you missed the priority processing deadline, we encourage you to still submit your FAFSA or WASFA as soon as possible! We also recommend that you contact alternative funding sources including Workforce Education to see if they can support you with financial assistance for the quarter. 

A student is considered to have met a Priority Funding Processing Date by completing the online FAFSA or WASFA AND submitting all required documents, forms and information to our office by the deadline. Meeting the Priority Funding Processing Date allows the Financial Aid Office to place a hold on your account so your classes won't be dropped for non-payment while we are processing your aid.

If a student wants to know what documents or forms they need to submit, they can check their preferred email listed in ctcLink, view the To-Do List in the Tasks tile in ctcLink, or contact our office.

*Students do not need to re-apply for financial aid each quarter they plan to attend Green River College. However, students are required to renew their FAFSA or WASFA every year they are in college. Student are able to renew their FAFSA or WASFA as early as October 1st for the following award year. See the years below to understand which FAFSA or WASFA year you should complete depending on when you will be attending Green River College.*

What Happens After I Submit All My Financial Aid Documents?

Once a student has submitted all their required financial aid documents, it may take several weeks or months before it is reviewed for eligibility for financial aid.

Once a student's aid has been processed, they will be able to view it in the Financial Aid tile in ctcLink.

Students who completed their files by the priority processing deadline are given a tuition hold to keep their classes in place before financial aid pays for them.

Students are responsible for covering the remaining balance on their student account if financial aid funds do not entirely cover their tuition and fees. 

If students are eligible to receive more funds than the cost of their tuition and fees, the remaining aid will be disbursed to them through BankMobile Disbursements, a technology solution, powered by BMTX, Inc.
