BC financial aid staff to provide FAFSA assistance at local high schools

Fri Oct 8, 2021

Funds are currently available to assist those looking to attend Brazosport College, and the financial aid specialists at BC are trained to assist each student in finding ways to make college more affordable.

The first step, however, is filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Whether it’s grants, scholarships, veteran benefits or loans, a FAFSA must be completed in order for the BC Financial Aid department to help.

With this in mind, Brazosport College is holding Financial Aid Nights at local high schools throughout the month of October to assist students in properly filling out the FAFSA. Representatives will also be available to answer questions about grants, scholarships and other financial aid options available at Brazosport College.

The dates and locations for upcoming Financial Aid Nights are:

  • BRAZOSPORT HIGH SCHOOL: Tuesday, Oct. 12 from 6-7:30 p.m. in Room 622

  • BRAZOSWOOD HIGH SCHOOL: Wednesday, Oct. 13 from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Main Campus Library

  • COLUMBIA HIGH SCHOOL: Tuesday, Oct. 26 from 6-7:30 p.m. in E1 Lab

  • BRAZOSWOOD HIGH SCHOOL: Wednesday, Oct. 27 from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Main Campus Library

Brazosport College financial aid representatives will be available at each of these sessions to answer questions, provide guidance in filling out the FAFSA and assist in completing one’s file.

If unable to attend one of the above Financial Aid Nights, students can visit the BC Office of Financial Aid and speak to one of the College’s financial aid specialists. Whether you’re a full- or part-time student, a high school dual credit student, a military veteran or an incoming student seeking training to work in local industry, BC might have a financial aid option to make furthering your education more affordable.

Brazosport College’s Office of Financial Aid is located in E-101 of BC Central. A financial aid specialist can also be reached by calling (979) 230-3377 or e-mailing finaid@brazosport.edu.
