Overview for New Applicants

Seattle Central offers a five step process to help you obtain financial aid. In order to qualify for full financial aid, you must be enrolled with 12 credits or more. You can still receive financial aid with less than 12 credits, but most grants require that you are registered in six credits or more.

If you are taking fewer than 12 credits please contact the Financial Aid Office immediately after registration (or you will experience delays in receiving financial aid funds). Note: You are responsible for any problems resulting from failure to follow application directions or any problems resulting from failure to meet an application deadline.
