CARES and HEERF Update 10/05/22

The Federal COVID Pandemic Assistance fund, also known as CARES and HEERF, allotted to Shoreline Community College has now been exhausted.  The grand total allocated and exhausted for the student’s portion was $6,647,581.00.  Students who were already awarded the COVID aid for Fall will begin to see their funds disbursement starting on Thursday, September 29th, 2022.     

A big shout-out and thanks to the Financial Aid team, the Shoreline Community College Foundation staff, and others who were involved in the process of implementing this fund. A special recognition and appreciation to Margie Pederson, who took on the reviewing and awarding of this fund on top of her other duties! Margie promised to award the entire allocation before her retirement, and she did it. Margie will be retiring on October 14. Thank you so much, Margie! 

Please share the below resources with students that may still require aid. 

United Way of King County has also provided emergency funding for the 2022-2023 academic year. Information on how to apply can be found on the emergency funding page.  Emergency funding options can be found at this link. 

For students needing additional aid, we encourage you to complete the 2022-2023 FAFSA  or WASFA.  Please visit Funding and Aid Sources to find additional funding options. Those who have already applied for fall 2022 traditional financial aid will have their classes placed on hold to prevent them from being dropped for non-payment while the Financial Aid Office review their files to determine eligibility.
