Washington College Grant

You may be eligible to attend college for free.

The Washington College Grant (formerly the State Need Grant) extends financial aid for more low to middle-income families in Washington state than ever before, providing free or low-cost college for eligible students. 

If you are still in high school, LCC's Running Start program may be right for you. Running Start allows eligible juniors and seniors to take college classes tuition-free.
