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.

Getting Started

Financial Avenue is now in Canvas! To get started, go to financialavenue.org and select Green River College.

Renew Your FAFSA/WASFA TODAY!

The 2023-24 FAFSA and WASFA applications are now open. You must renew your FAFSA/WASFA every year to receive aid. The 2023-24 application covers aid for summer 2023 - spring 2024. The priority deadline for summer and fall quarter next year is April 30th, but students who submit earlier may qualify for more aid and will be notified sooner about how much aid they can expect to receive.

Student Loan Debt Relief Is Blocked

Courts have issued orders blocking the U.S. Department of Education's student debt relief program. As a result, at this time, Federal Student Aid is not accepting applications. They are seeking to overturn those orders. If you've already applied, Federal Student Aid will hold your application. Subscribe and check the studentaid.gov website for updates. Information will be posted on studentaid.gov as soon as further updates are available.
