I certify that the information I have provided to Big Bend Community College, and the Workforce Education Services department, are true to the best of my knowledge. I am aware that I may have to provide documentation of support or agency verification, and this information will be used to determining eligibility for services.

I give permission for the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services and Big Bend Community College to use and share confidential information about me (except as limited below) as necessary for Employment and Training (E&T) activities as required by the Basic Food E&T (BFET) program.
This consent is valid for a maximum of three years from the date signed, unless I withdraw or change my consent in writing. This DOES NOT permit sharing of sensitive information about my mental health, chemical dependency, HIV/AIDS, and STD test results, diagnosis, or treatment.
I understand that I must fill out a separately approved consent form if I am under 18 years of age, I want to further limit the information shared about me, someone else is representing me in this matter, or I want to allow sharing of sensitive information about my mental health, chemical dependency, HIV/AIDS and STD test results, diagnosis or treatment.
I attest that all information provided on this application is true. I authorize Workforce Education Services staff to verify my eligibility by reviewing my FAFSA or WASFA application, current financial aid awards, educational intent, current course schedule, transcripts, and eligibility for TANF and food benefits through DSHS.
