By accepting financial aid, you are acknowledging understanding and agreement with the following:
I understand I cannot receive financial aid at two institutions at the same time.
I understand I must be enrolled in an eligible BBCC degree or certificate program.
I understand that if I withdraw from all my classes, I may have to repay some of the funds I received for which I was not eligible. The Return of Funds policy is posted on the Financial Aid website.
I understand that any debts owed to BBCC will increase with costs caused by the collection of such debts.
I understand I must maintain SAP to qualify for and continue to receive financial aid.
I understand adding or dropping classes before the census date may change my current and future eligibility and I may have to repay some of the state and/or federal funds. Enrollment levels will not be adjusted for classes added after the census date.

enroll in 5 or fewer credits
not return to BBCC
I understand that if I knowingly make a false statement or provide incorrect information on any financial aid forms, I am subject to a fine of $20,000 or less and/or imprisonment.
