College Goal Washington: Get Help Applying for Financial Aid

College Goal Washington is a free, on-site program that helps students and families complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for 2016-17, the form that is required to apply for federal financial assistance for higher education. For undocumented students, help is also available with filling out the Washington Application for State Financial Aid (WAFSA).
