Washington State Financial Aid for DREAMers
On February 26, 2014, Governor Jay Inslee signed into law the REAL Hope Act (SB 6523), also known as the Washington Dream Act. Beginning with the 2014-15 academic year, this new law expands eligibility for the Washington State Need Grant to non-citizens who meet the program's eligibility requirements in addition to all three residency criteria listed below:
- Have graduated from a Washington high school or obtained a GED®
- Have lived in Washington for three years prior to, and continuously since, earning the high school diploma or equivalent.
- Sign an affidavit (written promise) to file an application to become a permanent resident
of the United States when eligible to apply*.
*Students granted deferred action for childhood arrival (DACA) must also complete and sign the affidavit.
