Eligibility Requirements

Day and evening, full- and part-time students are eligible for financial aid consideration. Everyone who applies can qualify for some type (or combination) of aid. To receive aid, a student must meet the following requirements:

  • Have financial need (except for certain loan programs);
  • Be accepted into a degree or certificate program;
  • Be a U.S. citizen or permanent legal resident; and
  • Make satisfactory academic progress.

Federally funded financial aid programs require students to be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. State funded programs require the student (and parent) to have been Massachusetts residents for at least one year before start of the school year. International students with a strong GPA (3.0+) can earn the possibility of applying in the spring for BCC Foundation grants.
