Important News Concerning the 2024-25 FAFSA and WASFA

Financial aid applications for the upcoming 2024-2025 academic year are now available. Because of recent changes to the FAFSA under the FAFSA Simplification Act, Bellevue College and other Washington State community and technical colleges expect to begin receiving 2024-2025 FAFSA applicant information beginning June 10. This impacts the college’s processing timeline, and initial aid offers for 2024-2025 are likely to be delayed. Please continue to check our website for updates.

Bellevue College encourages all students to apply as early as possible.

Remember you only file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Washington Application for State Financial Aid (WASFA), not both.
