Guaranteed Education Tuition (GET) Accounts

If you plan to pay tuition and fees using your GET account, after you have registered for classes, notify the Financial Aid Office that you will be requesting a transfer of GET funds. You will then need to request an account distribution from your GET account. Payment may take two to three weeks for processing.

Agency Accounts and Employer Funded Accounts

If your tuition or textbooks are being paid by an outside agency or employer such as WorkSource, DSHS, Department of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR), Labor and Industries, Boeing, etc., you must provide the Financial Aid Office with an official payment letter or voucher upon registering for classes. The voucher or payment letter should be submitted to the Financial Aid Office at least three (3) business days prior to the tuition payment deadlines. This will allow our office the time necessary to input the information into the student system database and have it ready for you to use to pay the tuition and fee charges.

The financial aid office will also process vouchers or payment letters for book charges at the North Bookstore. Book vouchers may be issued two weeks before the quarter begins and must be used by the end of the third week of the quarter.

If you have any questions about agency account vouchers, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 206-934-3688 or
