Funding Information

Financial Aid

Submit your FAFSA to Green River College. There is no need to also submit a FAFSA to Olympic College as Green River College will be the college “hosting your funds.” Each quarter you will need to email a copy of your Olympic College schedule to Oksana Gorkovets @email to request a consortium agreement for funding. This allows you to receive funding as if you are a full time student even though you are only enrolled part time at each college. 

Running Start

Your high school counselor will need to fill out two separate EVF forms – one for each college. They will need to mark down how many credits you are eligible for at each college.   

VA Funding

This program is not eligible for Post 9/11 VA funding. If you have questions about your VA funding and having it count towards this degree please contact George Comollo at @email
