Student Financial Aid Portal

Portal guidelines:

Username and Password

  • Username = Social Security Number or WASFA ID Number (undocumented scholars)
  • Password = Date of Birth in six digits (MMDDYY)

By using this “Student Financial Aid Portal” you accept responsibility for reading and understanding the forms provided to you by links. If you do not understand something, you are responsible for contacting the Financial Aid office so that we can help you understand.

I Agree I Disagree

For security purposes, please make sure to “logout” of the Portal and close all windows when you leave. If you are having trouble logging into the Portal, please contact the Financial Aid Office via email or in person for assistance.

My award

Once Green River’s Financial Aid Office has determined your eligibility, you will be able to view your awards. You will have the option to “accept” or “decline” awards.

If you use the portal to accept financial aid awards, you accept responsibility for reading and understanding the following:

New student borrowers at Green River must complete Direct Loan Entrance Counseling and a Direct Loan Master Promissory Note online at StudentLoans.gov before the loan request will be processed.

Accepting/Declining your financial aid award on the portal

  • Scroll down to the AWARDS section.
  • Click on accept or decline for each line,
    OR accept all, OR decline all.
  • Click save button.
  • Scroll down past the bottom of the screen to the second "YES" button. "Are you sure you want to accept/decline these awards?" Click on YES to make the final save. 

Information we need from you

Any documents or information that we are missing will be listed without a date in the Date Received column.

If there is a down arrow next to a document, clicking on the arrow will open a new window and take you to our Financial Aid Forms page in order to print the document. Look for the name of the document in the list that matches the missing required form (paying attention to the “years”).
