Financial Literacy

On October 25, Green River College is launching the ctcLink student self-service portal that provides an improved user experience. Students should take steps to:

  • Visit the ctcLink webpage to activate your ctcLink account beginning October 25th
  • At this time, students will not be able to view information regarding their financial aid in ctcLink. Please refer to the Student Financial Aid Portal to view your aid status for the current award year (fall 2021, winter 2022, spring 2022). After the new year, information regarding the status of your aid for the 2022-2023 award year will be available in ctcLink for those who have submitted their FAFSA/WASFA applications.
  • Contact the Financial Aid Office if you have questions regarding your aid. We will re-open on October 25th. Please refer to our hours of operation to see when and how you can get in touch with us.
  • Renew Your FAFSA/WASFA applications for the 2022-2023 award year to ensure that you continue to receive aid for summer and fall quarter 2022.

Financial Education

Get access to quizzes, videos, interactive tools, and customized action plans to help demystify the world of personal finance

Green River College has teamed up with Inceptia to give you a leg up on financial education via their online program, Financial Avenue. With Financial Avenue, the idea is to provide you with smart resources to help demystify the world of personal finance. Trust us – getting a handle on your money doesn’t have to feel overwhelming or restrictive. It’s all about empowering yourself with smart basics, and planning from there.
With Inceptia’s money mascot, the Knowl, as your trusty guide, you will have access to ten online courses that take on big financial topics, including:

• Psychology of Money
• Foundations of Money
• College and Money
• FAFSA
• Loan Guidance
• Earning Money
• Credit and Protecting Your Money
• Spending and Borrowing
• Debt and Repayment
• Future of Your Money

We get it, sometimes financial education can be pretty boring and it doesn’t always make a lot of sense if you don’t know how to put your knowledge into action. But, Financial Avenue keeps you on your toes with quizzes, videos, interactive tools, and customized action plans at the end of each course. With all these tools, we’ve made it pretty easy to know exactly what you can begin doing RIGHT NOW to put your financial knowledge to good use. After all, the Knowl says there’s no time like the present.

Get started by setting up your private account at FinancialAvenue.org. Once there, just click the “Login” link at the top of the page, click to sign up as a student and then provide your access code shown below.
