Income Recalculation:

If you have had a significant change to your income you could be eligible for an income recalculation. You will find the form on the financial aid website www.edmonds.edu/finaid. We use your new information to recalculate your eligibility for financial aid. In many cases WR students become eligible for financial aid grants. Before we process a recalculation, you must have a completed financial aid file. In many cases students who were not originally eligible for regular financial aid become eligible after completing the Income Recalculation process.

Worker Retraining Tuition Assistance:

Worker Retraining tuition and book assistance is generally available for 1 or2 quarters. In some cases we may be able to award additional quarters of assistance. In order to be considered for additional quarters you must be following your Academic Plan. Your plan is a quarter by quarter listing of the classes needed for your degree or certificate. If you have updates or changes to your plan, please let us know. Again, make sure you have applied for regular financial aid - FAFSA for 2021-2022 and 2022-2023. If you are looking for tuition and book assistance after your Worker Retraining grants have exhausted, please see below for other funding options.
