COLLEGE GOAL CASCADIA

College Goal Cascadia is a program designed to support high school seniors, or first time college students through the entire Cascadia admissions process -- from financial aid application to class registration. It is a multi-session event, kicking off with a session devoted to providing free help in completing the FAFSA or WASFA.

College Goal Cascadia is set up to help high school seniors and first time college students navigate the entire Cascadia admissions process. If you miss either the February or May session, you will miss key components of the program. If you miss either session, you will not be eligible for the scholarship opportunity.

Please don't let the dates or times be a barrier to getting support with the admission process. We are available at outreach@cascadia.edu if these dates and times don't work.

limited availability

As with all things moving virtually, it opens up more room to participants. We still prefer to keep our cohort limit to 30 participants, and will determine a need to open up additional sessions. Please feel free to email outreach@cascadia.edu if you have any questions.
