Application Procedure

Application for financial assistance is made annually. The BGC’s final
deadline for submission of financial aid applications is January 15, for
both new and returning students. Those applying on or before the
deadline receive full consideration. Students whose admission and
financial aid applications are complete by January 15 will be notified
of financial aid awards by mid-April.

Eligibility for financial aid is determined each year by the demonstration of financial need. Financial need is assessed, by a uniform method, from financial data provided by the student on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA form should be sent to the federal processor by January 15. The BGC’s FAFSA number is 002671. It is crucial for applicants to submit their FAFSA on time. Late FAFSA applicants cannot be considered for financial aid.

A student applying for financial aid must not be in default of a federal student loan or owe a refund on a federal grant. The application is available online (, and applicants are encouraged to apply electronically.
