Welcome to BBCC Financial Aid!

1400 Bldg2

Financial aid can lower the cost of a Big Bend Community College education. BBCC will calculate your eligibility for aid on a first-come, first-served basis to eligible students as determined by federal, state, and institutional regulations, policies and procedures. Your eligibility will be determined using the information you, and in some cases your parents, submit on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA. For DREAMer students, financial aid eligibility will be determined using information submitted on the Washington Application for State Financial Aid, or WASFA.

BBCC awards financial aid chronologically based on the assigned “Ready to Award” date. The “Ready to Award” date is assigned once all required documents have been received.

Check the Financial Aid Portal for the most up to date information regarding the status of your Financial Aid Application.

The BBCC Foundation will be hosting scholarship workshops. They will be answering questions and providing assistance with scholarship essays on the following dates:

January 11, from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm at the ATEC building (1800) in the Masto Conference Center (directly across from the Hardin Room!)
