Welcome to South!

Whether you’re just thinking about coming to South Seattle College, or you’re already one of the thousands of students pursuing a degree with us already, we’re happy to have you.

Financial Aid is an important part of going to college. The process can seem daunting, and at times overly complicated, but the average student spends only about 3 hours a year completing the Application for Financial Aid; and with potentially thousands of dollars in federal, state, and institutional assistance, it’s time well spent.

The single most important thing to making sure you get financial aid, is that you read carefully, all the information we provide for you regarding financial aid funding, starting with our website. If you read our website, and any other documents we send you via email with the subject line “South Seattle College Financial Aid” from the email address then the financial aid process will be quick and easy for you and your family.

Learn how to complete the Application for Financial Aid by clicking on the corresponding link on the left.
