More students will be able to realize their goal of attending Skagit Valley College because of increased funding by the State of Washington for low- and middle-income students and families.

Free Money for College! The Washington College Grant, formerly known as the State Need Grant, provides guaranteed funding to all eligible residents of Washington state.

In addition to guaranteed funding for eligible students, the program was expanded to include students and families with higher incomes who may have been previously ineligible. Eligibility is determined by completing a federal or state financial aid application online.

Students who are eligible to complete the FAFSA online should do so, and those who are ineligible to complete the FAFSA may complete the WASFA.

Fall Classes start Sept. 22.

For more information, visit or call the SVC Financial Aid Office at 360-416-7666.
