About Us

Financial Aid Mission Statement:

Bossier Parish Community College is dedicated to the philosophy that no student who desires a college education should be denied the opportunity because of lack of funds. Therefore, the College seeks to assist eligible students in financing the costs associated with their education through various federal, state, and institutional programs. To the extent possible, students are aided in meeting their educational expenses through various forms of financial assistance programs.
