Application Checklist

  • Apply for admission to Edmonds Community College and take the Accuplacer test. BFET can help pay for your admission and testing fees. Ask for the fee waiver form from the BFET office or call 425.640.1727.
  • Choose an approved program from the list of eligible programs.
  • Make an appointment to meet with Advising. Have your advisor complete and sign the BFET Academic Training Plan and register for your classes.
  • Complete your federal financial aid application — FAFSA. After you file the FAFSA, check with Student Financial Services to determine what additional paperwork may be required. This additional paperwork is what creates a “file complete” date and determines when you can be awarded your financial aid. 
  • Complete all your financial aid paperwork even if recent deadlines have passed — this is where BFET can help you with tuition and book awards.
