Steps to Apply for Financial Aid

We encourage you to submit the 2023-2024 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) if you plan to attend Clark College summer quarter 2023 through spring quarter 2024.

Follow these steps to apply for and activate financial aid.

Step 1

Complete the online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Washington Application for State Financial Aid. The FAFSA/WASFA application is the first step for determining what funds you may qualify for to cover the cost of college. If you are unsure if you should complete a FAFSA or a WASFA, complete the WASFA Eligibility Questionnaire. You must indicate on the FAFSA that you are applying to Clark College by putting our school code on the application - 003773.

Step 2

If you are a new student at Clark College, apply for admissions.

Step 3

Complete additional forms required by the Clark College Financial Aid Office. We will also send you an e-mail reminder to your preferred email address when additional forms are required to be completed.
