*ATTENTION:  The General Assembly establishes tuition rates in the State budget or related legislation.  As of July 1, a budget for FY 2015-16 has not been enacted into law.  Therefore, a tuition increase may be implemented later this year.  To date, the General Assembly has discussed a tuition increase of up to $4 per credit hour.  If the General Assembly enacts a tuition increase that becomes effective prior to January 1, 2016, you will receive a supplemental bill for the balance owed for Fall term.


The primary purpose of the Office of Student Financial Resources 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 work study employment.

To be eligible for financial resources, entering students must meet all admissions requirements, including the submission of all required transcripts and enrollment in a Title-IV eligible program of study. 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 Office of Student Financial Resources for information and applications.

Before aid may be awarded, your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and all required paperwork must be submitted to the Office of  Student Financial Resources. The FAFSA can be found at www.fafsa.ed.gov.
