Financial Aid 101

When should I apply?

Apply for financial aid as soon as you have chosen to attend BMCC. Don’t wait until you have received your admission letter to apply for aid.  The federal application lets you list all the schools you are thinking about attending so that each school can make award estimates.

The Financial Aid Office has set up deadlines so that you know what aid will be available when you have to buy books and pay your tuition.

For more information, go to our Application and Award Deadlines page.

The deadlines are "soft" deadlines.  If you miss the posted date, you can still apply for financial aid, but some types of aid may have limited funding and is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. 

It can take 6-8 weeks to process your applications. Remember to put BMCC as one of your college choices on your application. The college needs to know you applied for aid in order to make financial aid awards.
