FAFSA Application Deadline

Submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as early as possible, but no earlier than October 1 prior to the academic year you are applying for.

Columbia Gorge Community College's (CGCC) award year begins with summer term and ends with the following spring term. Students who apply within 30 days of the last day of their enrollment period cannot be guaranteed delivery of their aid.

Campus-based funding is limited. The date you apply and the date all outstanding requirements are submitted can affect the amount of your financial aid awards.
