Application Deadlines

Financial aid at North Seattle College is awarded for the academic year beginning with Fall Quarter and ending Summer Quarter. North Seattle College’s priority funding deadline is March 15 each year. Students meeting this deadline will be considered for maximum grant and work-study funding. Quarterly deadlines are listed below. Students must apply for financial aid each academic year in which they plan to enroll in courses.

Students who do not meet the quarterly deadlines should plan to pay for their tuition and fees, as determination of financial aid eligibility may not occur until after the quarter begins.  All completed applications are reviewed in the order received.  Students are encouraged to submit their financial aid and admissions application at least one week prior to the deadline to ensure it is received and processed by the deadline date.

To meet the deadline all students need to submit the following items:

1.  Completed FAFSA or WASFA for the each aid year.  (Only one application is required per academic year.) 

2.  Complete the North Seattle College Admissions process, including linking you Social Security Number or ITIN to your Student ID number. (Students who do not yet have a SSN/ITIN, should notify the Financial Aid Office of their SID after completing the application.)

3. Complete and submit all verification paperwork as requested by the financial aid office and/or posted to your student financial aid portal.
