The 2024-25 FAFSA is now available for students and families to complete. Learn about the 2024-25 FAFSA changes.

Fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The priority deadline for filing the FAFSA is April 1, 2024. BC’s school code is 003704.

The FAFSA is also the approved application for all need-based institutional and state financial aid programs.

Completing the FAFSA is the first step in exploring your financing options. Most students are eligible for some form of financial aid. Apply each year you are enrolled to find out your eligibility. There are even aid programs for students who don’t qualify for need-based assistance.

If you miss the priority deadline, file your FAFSA as soon as possible. Applications submitted after April 1, 2024, will be processed as long as funds are available.

If you are trying to complete your FAFSA and are finding the instructions confusing, contact us. We can often provide a quick answer to put you back on the road to completing your application.
