Apply for Financial Aid

Financial aid can cover tuition and other academic fees, living expenses, or both. Day, evening, and online students who are enrolled either full- or part-time are eligible for financial aid consideration.

Each year, more than 80% of BCC students receive an average award of $5,000. That’s a significant savings on your annual tuition.

The first step to being awarded aid is by completing your government FAFSA, and filing as early as possible is always a great idea.
