Receive an Additional Financial Aid Grant this Spring!
Grants up to $1000 available to support students this spring
To help ease the financial burden caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, South Seattle College’s Financial Aid Office is making an additional financial aid grant available to eligible students for Spring Quarter 2020. These are grant funds, not loans that need to be paid back.
Current or new students taking 12 credits (fulltime student) during Spring Quarter can receive up to $1000 on top of their current financial aid awards, or any financial aid awards you would normally receive. Part-time students are eligible for awards as well, based on the chart below.
- 12+ credits = $1000
- 9-11 credits = $750
- 6-8 credits = $500
Awards can be used to help pay for living expenses and more during this challenging time. Students are encouraged to take at least 12 credits this Spring Quarter so they can receive the full award amount.
Who is eligible to receive this award?
Registered South Seattle College students who complete the Financial Aid Application process, including their FAFSA or WASFA for the 2019-20 Academic Year, and show Financial Need can receive an additional award added to their accounts for Spring Quarter 2020. Students must complete their financial aid file and accept their financial aid award letter no later than June 10, 2020. Student must have Washington State Residency status for tuition purposes.
Students who have already completed their FAFSA or WASFA for Spring Quarter and are eligible will receive their awards at the start of Spring Quarter.
Please note: International students and students enrolled in an apprenticeship program are not eligible to receive this award.
