    October and November College Application and Financial Aid Events

    Seattle Public Schools invites all seniors to attend one of the many college application and financial aid events happening throughout October and November.

    Financial aid experts and trained volunteers will be on hand to assist student with completing college applications and financial aid forms.

    The FAFSA and WASFA opened on October 1, 2017. Completing the FAFSA or WASFA is the first step in accessing college financial aid. It is required for most scholarships, grants and loans.

    • The FAFSA is the application that citizens and eligible non-citizens (i.e. permanent resident card/green card, conditional permanent resident, refugee) complete to access financial aid.
    • The WASFA is the application undocumented non-citizens complete to access financial aid.

    College Bound Scholarship seniors must complete the FAFSA or WASFA in order to receive their scholarship. Additional College Bound Scholarship requirements can be found here on the Ready Set Grad website.
