College Bound in the Fall? Find Help at Highline.

[fontawesome icon=”fa-dollar” circle=”no” size=”large” iconcolor=”#64bc56″ alignment=”left”]Attend this event and be entered into a raffle to win a scholarship, thanks to a $1,500 donation from the Highline College Foundation.

Experts and trained volunteers will be on hand to help with financial aid and college applications. Participants should arrive at noon in Building 7 on Highline’s main campus for a short presentation about how to pay for college and common questions about financial aid.

After the presentation, participants will go to the college’s computer lab to complete the online financial aid applications. People who are U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens can file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). People unable to file the FAFSA due to immigration status, can file the Washington Application for State Financial Aid (WASFA).

[fontawesome icon=”fa-calendar” circle=”no” size=”large” iconcolor=”#64bc56″ alignment=”left”]Both applications are now open. The priority deadline for state financial aid programs, which include the State Need Grant and College Bound Scholarship, is February 1.

Highline’s Financial Aid staff and trained volunteers will be available to help with the online applications, meet individually with participants and answer questions until 4 p.m.

This community event is open to anyone interested in continuing education beyond high school, and is made possible through College Goal Washington.

Location: Highline’s main campus, Building 7
