Skagit Valley College offers workshops to help students complete financial aid paperwork

Skagit Valley College (SVC) is pleased to announce its participation again this year in the “College Goal Washington” event on Saturday, October 21 from 9:00 am-1:00 pm at SVC’s Mount Vernon and Whidbey Island campuses.

     College Goal Washington is a program that helps students and families complete the FAFSA or WASFA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid/Washington Application for State Financial Aid) which is the applications needed to apply for financial assistance for post-secondary education.

     Students from SVC, as well as high school students and their families, are welcome to attend. The event is being held in October as FAFSA/WASFA applications are available now.

     Attendees will receive assistance in filling out FAFSA/WASFA forms from trained volunteers. In addition, financial aid experts will be onsite to answer questions about how to pay for college, how to access financial aid, and to work individually with students on a case-by-case basis.                                                                                  

     Students who are ineligible for the FAFSA due to citizenship status may be eligible to file the Washington Application for State Financial Aid (WASFA) and access the State Need Grant, helping them pay for college. Trained volunteers and interpreters will be available to work with students and families to fill out the WASFA.

     For more information about the event, contact Rose Hill, Outreach Specialist, (360) 416-7795 or rose.hill@skagit.edu
