Financial Aid Processing is Underway

Centralia College is currently reviewing Financial Aid applications for all students who met the priority submission deadline of Aug. 1. Awards will be applied in small batches to ensure accuracy.

STUDENTS PLEASE DO THIS: 

  • Login to ctcLink to view your To-Do List! Make sure you do not have any outstanding items. Missing or incomplete documentation will delay your award. 
  • Check your college email! Students have been notified of their Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) status from spring or summer quarter. If you need to file an appeal, please follow the directions provided in the email. 
  • Be sure to attend ALL your classes! Financial Aid students will NOT be dropped from classes for non-payment.
    Be sure to login to ctcLink and look for a hold on your student account that says “Tuition Deferred – Possible FA.” If you do not see this alert, please contact ccfinancialaid@centralia.edu right away.  
  • You may need to purchase books and supplies before your check arrives. If you are participating in Running Start, TRiO, BFET, Worker Retraining, WorkFirst, or Opportunity Grant, you may be eligible for book money! Please check with your program support staff to find out about available funding.
  • Login to ctcLink to verify your Check Address. Checks will be mailed to the Check Address on file in ctcLink.
