Did you know?
Tuition seems like such a big number but there's more to the story. Individual students who completed the FAFSA last January, met all financial aid deadlines and qualified for the maximum need-based aid available received the following 2017/18 federal and state grants:
- Federal Pell Grant +$5,920
- WA State Need Grant +$9,369
- Total award = $15,289
That's enough to cover tuition and books!
- Are you a College Bound Scholarship student? Your tuition is covered in full.
- Are you a transfer student? Good news. You're eligible for significantly more financial aid when you file the FAFSA.
