Receiving Aid

The Office of Student Financial Aid notifies you of your federal financial aid award package by email. You can view and accept your award package in BCU Financial Aid Online. Any federal grants that you are awarded are automatically accepted for you. The federal work-study program and federal loans require you to accept the award through your BCU Financial Aid Online account.

Before accepting any federal aid, make sure that you will be enrolled for all the semesters for which you are accepting aid. If an award amount is offered for a semester that you will not be enrolled, contact the Office of Student Financial Aid
