Cost of Attendance and Financial Need

The North Seattle College Financial Aid Office assists students in the process of applying for financial aid and finding ways to meet education expenses. Financial aid is designed to assist students and/or their parents in paying basic educational costs for eligible certificate and degree programs.

The financial aid programs at North Seattle College are administered in accordance with established state and federal regulations and policies. The basic federal formula for determining financial need for funding is based on the following equation:

Cost of Attendance (COA) - Estimated Family Contribution (EFC)* = Financial Need

*EFC is determined by the information students submit on their FAFSA/WASFA and verified by the financial aid office.

The published Cost of Attendance table for the current can be found here. Information for prior years may be requested from the financial aid office via email or in person.
