Financial Aid

Important Dates and Deadlines

The 2014-2015 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is available for students that plan to attend Clark College summer quarter 2014 through spring quarter 2015.  

Additional forms will be requested after the Financial Aid Office receives your FAFSA.  It is important to apply early and check your Clark College student email often to see if additional information is needed to complete your financial aid award.

Federal Direct Loans require an additional online application that is accessible the day after students receive their Clark College award notification.

Non-citizen students may be eligible for the Washington State Need Grant. Eligibility requirements and application can be found here.
