Financial Aid

Welcome to South!

Whether you’re just thinking about coming to South Seattle College, or you’re already one of the thousands of students pursuing a degree with us already, we’re happy to have you.

Financial Aid is an important part of going to college. The process can seem daunting and, at times, overly complicated, but we are here to help. The average student will spend about 3 hours a year completing the Application for Financial Aid and receive over $4,000 in grants and scholarships. In contrast, students earning $15 per hour will spend approximately 267 hours to earn the same amount.

The single most important thing to making sure you get financial aid is that you read all the information we provide for you regarding financial aid funding. We send communications, via email, with the subject line “South Seattle College Financial Aid” from the email address FinancialSouth@seattlecolleges.edu

Also, financial aid is typically available for full-time and part-time students, so you can take as little as one credit per quarter and still be eligible. So, start the process today.

South will begin awarding financial aid for Fall 2022 in April 2022 so complete your 2022-2023 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) or WASFA (Washington Application for State Financial Aid) today.
