2020-2021 Financial Aid
Application Information

Beginning with the 2020-2021 award year, Clark College Financial Aid Office is transitioning to a new system. Students can view their financial aid information in the student homepage by clicking on the Financial Aid tile.

The Financial Aid Office has begun to process 2020-2021 financial aid applications. Once you complete your 2020-2021 financial aid application, you will receive a confirmation email from our office notifying you of the next steps in the process. Please continue to monitor your preferred email and access your student homepage, until you receive notice of your award status. Please be aware this process can take some time and we appreciate your patience.

If you have not completed a financial aid application, you can complete the 2020-2021 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at or the Washington Application for Student Financial Aid (WASFA) at

Important Information:

  • If you are planning to attend the current term, you must be enrolled/registered for classes before financial aid fund can be added to your award for the current term.
  • Tuition & Fees Payment Due Dates and Payment Options:
  • Notes: Once you submit all your required information to our office, your tuition payment will be placed on hold so your classes will not be dropped until we complete the review of your financial aid. If you are not eligible for financial aid fund, you are respsonsible for the balance you owe.
  • If you have emergency expenses because of the disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19 and you are a current student or will be enrolled for summer term, you may be eligible for the CARES Act Emergency Grant:
