Get free help completing the FAFSA or WAFSA at our College Goal Washington Event

Skagit Valley College is excited to be hosting its third College Goal Washington event!

Students and parents are invited to attend the College Goal Washington event on Saturday, October 21 from 9am-1pm at both the Mount Vernon and Whidbey Island campuses. Attendees will receive assistance in filling out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) from trained volunteers.

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.

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.

For more information about the event, please contact Rose Hill, Financial Aid Outreach Specialist, at 360-416-7795 or rose.hill@skagit.eduFor more information about the statewide and national campaigns, please contact the Washington Student Achievement Council at 360-753-7800.
