SPSCC today announced that its undocumented students affected by the COVID-19 pandemic now have access to emergency funding through the Washington Undocumented Student Relief Grant (WUSRG). The $5 million funding source stems from House Bill 1368 which was signed into law by Gov. Inslee in Feb. 2021.

How to Apply

You can apply once each quarter. Follow the form link and sign into the mySPSCC portal. Certify eligibility for the WUSRG, select type of aid requested, and give a brief description of need.

Who Can Apply

Students can apply if they:

  • Demonstrate financial need;
  • Have been enrolled or are enrolling as a student in the 2020-21 academic year;
  • Have submitted or are eligible to submit the Washington Application for State Financial Aid (WASFA); and
  • Have not qualified for federal funded student financial aid because of their citizenship status.
