Financial Aid

Financial aid comes in the form of federal, state, institutional, and private fund(s) used to assist eligible students in funding their education. To apply for Federal, State, or Institutional Aid, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year.  The Office of Financial Aid will determine the types of aid you qualify for based on the information you provide on your FAFSA.   You may be awarded a combination of grants, federal work-study, and federal loans.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be completed annually by all students applying for financial aid.   The FAFSA is available on October 1 of each year.  Be sure to include BPCC School Code: 012033 on your application.  Once your application has been processed (allow 5-7 business days), you will receive an email confirmation. 

The 2023-2024 FAFSA is now available.  Complete or renew your FAFSA now for the Fall 2023, Winter 2023, Spring 2024, and Summer 2024 semesters!
