Financial Aid

The Financial Aid Office provides counseling and assistance to students who do not have the necessary financial resources to accomplish their educational objectives.

**As of 9/28/2020 $487,119 has been allocated out to students and the CARES Act Fund is almost exhausted. We will continue to collect and hold on to applications as the college is attempting to secure more funding. Students that did not receive this grant and have the loan eligibility may apply for a technology loan and borrow up to $1,500 by completing the Additional Academic Expense Request-PDF.**

Evergreen has $500,000 in federal CARES Act funds available now to support student success in a remote learning environment. You can apply for grants to purchase computers, peripherals, software, or pay for internet access needed for school.

CARES Act Technology Assistance Grant (PDF)

These Technology Support Grants will be available on a first-come-first-served basis. Students' eligibility will be based on their level of need, as determined by the FAFSA or WASFA. Grants will be available to new and current students who are enrolled and registered for Fall Quarter 2020.

These cash grants will be paid by electronic deposit or mailed check. Because these funds are specifically meant to help with additional expenses related to attending college during the pandemic, the grants will not reduce any student's current financial aid package.
