Beginning with the 2014-2015 academic year, the REAL Hope Act, also known as the Washington Dream Act, will allow non-citizens (undocumented students and DACA recipients)  to apply for student 
 financial aid in Washington State. This new law extends eligibility for the Washington State Need Grant to non-citizens who meet certain program requirements and residency requirements.

Residency requirements: 

Have graduated from a Washington high school or obtained a GED. 
Have lived in Washington for three years prior to, and continuously since, earning the high school diploma or equivalent. 
Sign an affidavit (written promise) to file an application to become a permanent resident to the United States when eligible to apply*. 

*Students granted deferred action for childhood arrival (DACA) must also complete and sign the affidavit.

The Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC) has released the new online state financial aid application--the Washington Application for State Financial Aid (WASFA). Students are encouraged to file the WASFA as soon as possible to maximize their chances 
 of being granted an award for the 2015-16 school year.  To apply, please visit the WASFA.
