The Financial Aid Process

Students who wish to be considered for federal aid and other need-based aid must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid at www.fafsa.gov. The FAFSA priority deadline for new students is March 15 and March 30 for returning students. Students who are Virginia residents must have their Virginia Tuition Assistance Grant application completed by July 31 to be guaranteed state funding. Students that received VTAG in the prior award year DO NOT need to complete a new application. The priority deadline for all other financial aid requirements is June 1. Please utilize your MyBC account to view the status of your financial aid, along with the documents needed to finalize your financial aid.
