Check Your Status (Financial Aid Portal)

Check your financial aid statusThe Financial Aid Office is transitioning to paperless notifications. It is the student’s responsibility to check the Portal regularly. The portal allows students to view their financial aid status and award.

Note: If you see ‘Award Letter’ in the section titled “Information We Need From You”, this is notification of your award and requires no action.

Highline College Student Email Account (myHighline)

Our office sends all email notifications to the student email account on record. Please be sure you are checking your student email account.

For myHighline assistance, please contact HelpDesk at (206) 592-4357 or email helpdesk@highline.edu.

The Financial Aid Portal allows you to view the following

  • My Awards: View your financial aid awards
  • Additional Information: See personalized messages from the Financial Aid Office
  • Information We Need From You: See what documentation you are required to submit
    Dates in ‘date received’ field indicate when the item was submitted.

  • A student needs to have submitted their FAFSA before they will be able to log into the Financial Aid Portal

  • Password = Highline PIN (same as your PIN for Highline Online Services)If your PIN is your date of birth, enter it in the mmddyy (Ex: October 1st, 1997 = 100197) format, without the slash (/).
  • If your PIN begins with zero (0) the Portal may or may not accept the leading zero (0). Examples: March 1, 1990 = 30190 or 030190 and December 1, 1990 = 120190
