Apply to College

The 12th Year Campaign can help you with two important steps you need to take to go to college, applying for college and financial aid.

The first step is to apply for admissions to your post-high school options. Next, file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Washington Application for State Financial Aid (WASFA). You can do this at a College Goal Washington event. College Goal Washington is a free, on-site program that helps students and families complete their financial aid applications.

Find a 12th Year Campaign Event near you for help with completing your financial aid and admissions applications.
NEW! Watch the GEAR UP College Application Panel featuring Central Washington University, Tacoma Community College, Pacific Lutheran University, and Clover Park Technical College.

This workbook is for high school juniors and seniors. It is a guide for navigating college admissions and financial aid. Additionally, the handouts below accompany the 12th Year Campaign Junior/Senior Student Workbook, which guides students through navigating college admissions and financial aid.
