Most students need financial aid to pay for college, whether they choose a four-year university, community college, vocational or technical school

VANCOUVER – Prospective college students and their parents can get expert help filing for financial aid for college in fall 2022 at College Goal Washington, a free event that helps students and families complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). College Goal Washington will be offered four days in October in the Undergraduate Building, Room 100 at Washington State University Vancouver. 

  • 6 – 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6
  • 5:45 – 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 12
  • 5:45 – 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 17
  • 4 – 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 26

Most students need financial aid to pay for college, whether they choose a four-year university, community college, vocational or technical school. The FAFSA is the most important application for financial assistance for higher education. 

Did you know Washington state ranks 47th in FAFSA filing? At the same time, the Washington College Grant is the most generous state college need grant in the country. This year, a family of four making up to $107,000 can qualify for financial aid in Washington. More Washington residents are able to attend college for less money—many for free. But you have to file the FAFSA to access it.

Students and families who are not eligible for the FAFSA can get help filing the WASFA (Washington Application for State Financial Aid). Translation assistance will be available for Spanish speakers.

Visit vancouver.wsu.edu/cgw to register and for information on how to prepare for filing your financial aid application. Registered guests will receive a free parking pass.

  • Your social security card/number or Alien registration

Of course the university will help you mortgage your future. There was a time that getting a college degree meant something. Now it means thousands of dollars of debt that takes a lifetime to repay. Is it really worth it? Covid proved you can save a fortune by taking courses online if you think you need a degree. WSU raises tuition every year because they can. You really need to think about your return of investment.
