Looking for help with tuition?

You may be eligible for one of the programs below to get you started. For more information about these funding options, make an appointment at the Counseling and Advising Center; call (425) 235-5804 or stop by Building I. You can also visit Start Next Quarter to register for an orientation session.

Always start your search for funding by completing your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Even if you think that you won’t qualify for financial aid, or that it won’t won’t be processed soon enough, completing your FAFSA is generally a requirement to qualify for other funding sources. In addition to the information on the FAFSA website, a Guide to Completing the FAFSA is available in the RTC Financial Aid Office, Room I-205.
