Check your application status

If awarded a Highline College Foundation Scholarship, it will impact your FAFSA award amount. Therefore, receiving Pell grant, State Need Grant, WAFSA or like scholarship, may make you ineligible for the Highline Foundation scholarship. If you are unsure whether you have/will receive one of these, we encourage you to complete the Highline College Foundation application and advise us later if you receive such a scholarship. Most Foundation Scholarships are intended to fund tuition and fees only, and will not cover personal expenses. Any balance remaining after tuition and fees are paid will be returned to the Foundation.
