Financial Aid Options for 2017-2018
 

All high school students can apply for Dual Credit TPEG (Texas Public Education Grant) and Scholarship funding.

 

Students are required to submit the FAFSA application to BC and have a complete file by the priority deadline in order to have funds in place before they are due. Students submitting FAFSA and required forms late will need to be prepared to enroll in the payment plan. If they are approved before all the payments are made, the award will pay off the remaining amount. Dual credit funds are NOT reimbursable.

The FALL/SPRING semester award limit is $500 for eligible students enrolled in at least 3 credit hours until the funds are depleted. The funds are used to pay towards tuition, fees and required books in BC bookstore only. Funding is no longer available for Dual Credit students in the Summer.

 
 
PRIORITY DEADLINES
 
FALL - JUNE 1
SPRING - NOVEMBER 1
SUMMER - APRIL 1
 
 

STEP BY STEP PROCESS

 
  1. See your high school dual credit counselor to register for a minimum of 3 college credit hours (one class). Homeschoolers and students attending private schools should visit with BC campus counselors.

  2. Create an FSAID.  Apply for one for yourself and one parent if you are a dependent.

  3. Log into the FAFSA website, complete and submit your financial aid application.

  4. Upon receiving a Student Aid Report (SAR) from the Department of Education, Brazosport College Financial Aid office will send a letter with instructions on how to obtain forms required from our website. Complete, print and return them as soon as possible. During registration, look on myBC to find out the status of your aid before paying for classes as dual credit funds are not reimbursable.
