Financial Aid Deadlines

Financial Aid Deadlines

Green River College’s priority funding deadline is March 15 each year. Students meeting this deadline will be considered for maximum funding for the academic year. Quarterly deadlines are listed below.

A student is considered to have met a deadline by completing the online FAFSA or WASFA and submitting all required documents, forms and information. Read more about applying for financial aid

Files completed by the Quarterly Priority Deadlines will qualify to be awarded with the “on-time” award funds. Files completed thereafter are awarded on a first-come-first-serve basis for the remainder of the year. Completed files are put in line to be awarded by monthly cutoff dates.  All completed files in the “on time” group are awarded prior to moving on to award files completed in subsequent months. Funds are not set aside for files requiring corrections or for students not considered in "good academic standing."

Financial aid at Green River College is awarded for the academic year beginning with Fall Quarter and ending Summer Quarter.
