Funding your college education takes work, persistence, and dedication. Please make sure to put the required time and effort into the following steps.
1. It is very important that you complete the FAFSA as soon as possible. Please click this link to go to the federal student aid website to complete. The OC school code for financial aid is 003784.
If you need assistance with the FAFSA, please:
2. Apply for scholarships.
3. Other Funding Available.
There are some other funding options such as grants and waivers. A list of the types of financial aid can be found here.
4. Tuition is due for fall quarter 2019 on September 9, 2019. For more information including the college's payment plan, click here.
There's more to funding your education than just the FAFSA. Olympic College's Financial Aid department communicates with their students primarily through the Student Financial Aid Portal. There's more paperwork to do than just the FAFSA and it is all inside the portal. Login instructions are on the page and available once you click here.
Please submit requested financial aid documentation as soon as possible so your award can be processed. This process takes approximately 4-6 weeks but will be held up by missing documentation so check your portal regularly.
If you need assistance logging into the Portal, please contact:
As a reminder, tuition is due for fall quarter 2019 on September 9, 2019.
Olympic College requires completion of the Accuplacer for placement into Math and English classes. This test can be taken on the OC campus or at many colleges and universities throughout the country. Check with your local college's testing center to see what placement test they use. Some colleges and universities will require a voucher number from Olympic College in order to take the test at their center. Contact Paul Wong in the Olympic College Testing Center by calling (360)475-7238 or by email at email@example.com or AccuplacerQuestions@olympic.edu to get the voucher number and further directions.
**IMPORTANT** OC requires both Reading and Writing scores for entrance into your initial English course. When registrating for the Accuplacer at another institution, please make sure you also take the Writing section (NOT WritePlacer).
If you complete the Accuplacer at another institution, please have them send the results to OC via fax at 360-475-7470 or email at AccuplacerQuestions@olympic.edu.
You may not register for English or Math classes until this test is complete so register and take it as soon as possible. It is highly recommended that you practice for this test. Click this link and scroll down to "Practice & Prepare" to find resources.
Want to take the test at OC? Click here for more information. This link will also have information regarding accommodations for disabilities and alternate options for assessment such as the Smarter Balanced Assessment and SEM Courses.
Questions? Call the Testing Center at 360-475-7238 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org or accuplacerquestions.com
This test must be completed prior to your appointment with our Athletic Academic Advisor.
The Student Orientation to Advising & Registration (SOAR) program is intended to help orient you to Olympic College. It is required prior to class registration.
For local students, click here for registration.
For out-of-area students, click here for the online version and follow steps 1-5.
IMPORTANT! On step 4 on the online version and in the workshop on campus, you will asked to schedule an appointment to meet with an advisor. We have an advisor specific to our student-athletes. Once you have completed your Accuplacer, SOAR, and have put together a class schedule plan (see the next tab in this list), send an email to email@example.com to schedule an appointment.
Once you have completed SOAR and the Accuplacer, you must schedule an appointment with Athletic Academic Advisor, Shannon Bell. If you have not done so already, please email her for an appointment: firstname.lastname@example.org. These appointments can occur face-to-face or via phone.
Again, both SOAR & the Accuplacer test (all sections) must be complete prior to your appointment time.
To help the process of academic advising, you must prep for your appointment. Please respect this process by completing the following:

If you are looking for an on-campus job, please click here to go to the career center website. For a step-by-step guide, please click here to download. This guide is created by the Athletics & Recreation Departments to help you in this process. There are many jobs on campus outside of Athletics & Recreation, especially if you qualify for work study funding. The jobs available in the Athletics & Recreation Departments are extremely limited so we recommend pursuing options outside of the department as well.
Hiring Process Notes:
1) A completed application is not a guarantee for a job.
2) Make sure you have completely followed all instructions. Incomplete applications will be rejected.
3) If selected, you may be notified for an interview by the hiring manager.
4) Prior to completing hiring paperwork, state law requires you to pass a background check.
5) When hired for a position, you will need to complete hiring paperwork, which will require filling out an federal form called an I-9. All required documents to prove residency must be either original or certified copies. Expired documents will not be accepted.
6) In addition, you will fill out a W-4, which is a federal tax document. The Career Center cannot give tax advice so if you have never filled out this form, it is recommended that you pursue any necessary clarifications in advance.
7) Lastly, OC pays their employees via direct deposit. You will need a direct deposit form from you bank with your account information. Many banks have this available online once you log into your account. Make sure you know how to get this information!
7) All hiring paperwork must be completed before you can work. Failure to complete hiring paperwork in a reasonable amount of time will result in loss of position.
Please click here to download specific forms required for your sport. These forms are required prior to participation. You cannot participate without them completed and turned in. Please turn them in online by following these instructions.
Specific Notes Regarding the Sports Physical:
For student-athletes who may have a diagnosed mental illness, learning disability or injury that impedes the learning process, Access Services will provide avenues to help with academic and life success. Please click the link for the Access Services website. You will need to apply for services by clicking the "Apply for Services" button.
If you have an IEP at your high school, it is important to note that it DOES NOT TRANSFER to OC automatically. You must do the work to get services set up here, which includes applying for services and submitting the proper medical paperwork from the diagnosing doctor(s).
Baseball and Softball athletes will need an enhanced driver’s license or a passport as both teams will travel to Canada to play Douglas College.
Do not wait until the last minute to get this taken care of. This can be a long process and needs to be taken care of soon after signing your LOI.
For more information on the enhanced driver's license, click here for the website of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
For Washington State residents,click here for the website on how to get your enhanced driver's license.
For information on getting a U.S. Passport, click here.
If you plan to transfer after your time at OC, you will want to register with the NAIA and NCAA. This does not need to be completed before you attend classes at OC but will need to be completed before you transfer to a 4-year school. You should register for both in case you are recruited at both levels.
