The Financial Aid Office would like to inform you about some changes to policies and procedures that may affect students' eligibility to receive financial aid in a future school year. 

Beginning in winter quarter 2020, the U.S. Department of Education and Washington's Student Achievement Council gave colleges the flexibility to provide relief for students who may have not been able to earn their attempted credits. Understanding the sweeping impacts of COVID 19 and in the interest of equity, The Evergreen State College chose to use the flexibility granted by our government partners to provide relief to all students, relative to our Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy. This means that any unearned credits, beginning winter 2020 through fall 2021, are not counted when determining a student's SAP for financial aid. 

The maximum number of attempted credits that may be paid for with financial aid has not changed. Students may not receive financial aid once they have attempted 225 credits toward a BA or BS (Bachelor of Arts or Science) degree, or they have attempted 270 credits toward the dual, BAS (Bachelor of Arts and Science) degree.

The relief that has been extended from our federal and state partners is set to expire at the conclusion of fall quarter 2021. It is also important to understand that any financial aid used during these past several quarters will still count toward aggregate limits on federal and state financial aid programs.
Thank you,

Financial Aid Office
