Financial Aid

Our Mission

The mission of the Office of Financial Aid is to ensure that every eligible BMCC student has access to the financial resources needed to attain a post-secondary education.

Consistent with our stated mission, we are committed to achieving the following goals:

  • Provide the counseling and other services that students and families need to establish and maintain eligibility for federal, state, city and institutional award programs.
  • Manage the systems and procedures necessary to allow funds to be awarded and disbursed to students in a responsible and timely manner.
  • Provide courteous and efficient service to students, families, faculty and staff.

Assistance for Enrolled or Prospective Students

BMCC has designated a group of employees who are available to assist enrolled or prospective students in obtaining institutional and financial assistance information.*  Their combined work schedules have been arranged so that at least one of them is available, upon reasonable notice, throughout the normal administrative working hours of the school.

Please contact the BMCC’s Panther Station (Room S-225 at 199 Chambers St.) or phone (212) 220-8000, Ext. 7320 for assistance in this area.  They will coordinate/organize the resources necessary to satisfy all relevant data requests.
