Beaufort County Community College strives to provide financial assistance to all students who demonstrate financial need and ensure qualified students are not denied the opportunity to an education due to the lack of financial resources. The student financial aid program is designed to assist students with educational expenses supplementing family resources to pursue educational goals. BCCC offers federal and state grants, scholarships, loans, and student employment. Eligible students may receive one or more of these types of financial aid to assist with tuition, fees, books, and other education-related expenses.
All students who have completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) are considered for all types of financial aid without regard to the student’s race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, or disability. In all financial aid awards, students have the right to accept or decline any aid offered.
