The primary purpose of the financial aid program at Brunswick Community College is to provide assistance to students who, without aid, would be unable to begin or continue their college education.
Types of financial aid include grants, scholarships, and on-campus work-study jobs. Grants, like scholarships, in most cases are awards, which do not have to be repaid. Student work-study employees receive an hourly wage. To be eligible for financial assistance, entering students must meet all admissions requirements. Returning students must be in good academic standing and must not exceed the maximum enrollment time frame for graduation from their program of study. Students needing financial assistance should contact their high school guidance counselor or the Brunswick Community College Financial Aid Office for information and applications.
