Dates & Deadlines

Financial aid at Seattle Central College is awarded for the academic year beginning with Fall Quarter and ending Summer Quarter. Students must apply for financial aid each academic year in which they plan to enroll in courses. 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. If the deadline falls on the weekend or holiday, the Financial Aid Office will accept documents received before the close of business on the following working day.

Application Deadlines 2021–2022 Academic Year

Students who do not meet the quarterly deadlines listed will have their financial aid application reviewed, however eligibility may not be determined until after the tuition payment deadline. Students should plan to pay for their tuition and fees or sign up for the deferred tuition payment plan prior to the start of the quarter. To meet the deadline all students need to submit the following items:

  1. Completed FAFSA or WASFA for the applicable aid year. (Only one application is required per academic year.)
  2. Complete the Seattle Central College Admissions process, including linking you Social Security Number or ITIN to your Student ID number. (Students who do not have a SSN or ITIN, should notify the Financial Aid Office of their SID after completing the application.)

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

Priority Deadline

Due to CTC Link implementation, the financial aid priority deadline for the 2021-2022 academic year is TBD until further notice. The Financial Aid office will publish the priority and quarterly deadlines for the 21-22 academic year as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

If you miss the deadline for the quarter in which you want to begin, you may still be eligible to apply for some financial assistance. Please immediately email the Financial Aid Office to learn more about applying for aid after the deadline or call at 206.934.3844.

Meeting the deadline date does not guarantee that you will receive aid. If you drop to less than full–time within the first 5 class days without replacing credits, you will owe a repayment.
