Financial Aid Status


It can take 3 to 6 weeks (up to 8 weeks between May and September when volumes are heavy) to process your award from the file completion date (the date all required documents are received by the Financial Aid Office). You can check the APPLICATION STATUS in the FA portal to determine whether your file is complete.

NOTE!! Awards are subject to change. Check the FA portal weekly, even after you have been awarded.  Below are some APPLICATION STATUS messages and what they mean.

  1. READY FOR REVIEW:  Application is considered complete with all required documents received; your application will be reviewed in date order.
  2. SUBMIT REQUIRED FORMS:  Application has been selected for verification or additional documents are needed to consider your application complete.

If you have completed a FAFSA online and included Olympic College as one of your school choices, you can view your financial aid status including any awards you have been offered on our new Student Financial Aid Portal (click link above).


To log in to the Student Financial Aid Portal you will need your Social Security Number (no dashes) and your six-digit birth date (mmddyy). Those with single digit birth-month may have to drop the leading 0 (zero). For example, a student born on January 9, 1985 may have to enter 10985 (instead of 010985).

Note: Students can change their Global PINs in OASIS. However, it will not update for the Financial Aid Portal until that evening when the synchronization job runs to match the Global PIN to Financial Aid Portal Password. New Global PIN must be at least 5 digits.

What you can see in the Portal:

  • Messages from our office
  • Documents you have turned in or need to turn in
  • Awards you have been offered
  • Loans awarded and/or disbursements made
