Financial Aid

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 https://fafsa.ed.gov/

Grants & Federal Work Study

A FAFSA must be submitted before a student may be considered for any form of financial assistance.

Grants, like scholarships (in most cases), are awards which do not have to be repaid.

Federal Pell Grant

This program is federally funded, and awards are based on need.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

FSEOG are awarded to undergraduate students with exceptional financial need.

 Federal Work Study

The Federal Work Study (FWS) Program provides part-time employment opportunities for eligible students to earn a regular paycheck to help meet college expenses. Students must submit a FAFSA and all required verification documents to be eligible for work study, but do not have to be receiving Federal Pell Grant to be eligible for FWS.

Applications for FWS can be submitted at any time throughout the academic year and will remain on file in the Office of Student Financial Resources for the duration of the current academic year.
