12th Year Campaign pays off in higher financial aid completion rates
Olympia—High school seniors in the class of 2020 won’t want to miss out on Washington’s generous state financial aid programs. The Washington College Grant is the newest of these, and it will be fully funded starting fall quarter of 2020. However, many students will miss this opportunity if they don’t complete a financial aid application. There is a way for students to get help with financial aid applications. The 12th Year Campaign, administered by the Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC), is a partnership with high schools that opens the door to more affordable paths for students’ next steps—which could be certificate programs, colleges, or apprenticeships.
