Financial Aid Office
BCCC is dedicated to helping students and their families remove the financial barriers that might discourage students from attending college. The College participates in most major Federal and State programs, and offers different institutional scholarships, as well as a variety of BCCC Foundation scholarships.
Student financial aid is any grant, scholarship, benefit, or employment opportunity provided to help students meet their educational expenses. Financial aid is usually provided by private foundations, Federal and State governments, and by colleges and universities. The College awards campus-based aid (Federal Work-Study and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants) and most institutional scholarships on a first-come first-serve need basis.
The amount and types of financial aid are determined by Federal, State, and institutional guidelines. Federal and most State financial aid programs are based on need. Students must reapply each year for most of these programs.
Students and parents are expected to make a reasonable contribution toward college costs, based on the family's financial ability to contribute.
Students selected by the Federal government for verification must submit the required documentation to the Financial Aid Office before being awarded financial assistance.
Students are usually offered financial aid "packages" consisting of grants, scholarships, and employment. Grants and scholarships are regarded as "gift" aid and need not be repaid.
If aid is offered in the form of a job, the student is paid an hourly rate that cannot be less than the minimum wage.
(BCCC does not participate in the Federal loan programs; however, the institution does offer the Hackerman Loan, not to exceed $500, to meet eligible students' short-term emergency needs.)
Students who are not eligible for grants should contact the Student Accounting Office to discuss others options to pay tuition and fees. The Student Accounting Office is located on Liberty Campus, Main Building, Room 27 and the office number is 410-462-8333.
Financial aid recipients have the right to appeal financial aid decisions to the Financial Aid Office.
