Financial Aid

Notice

Until further notice, the BBCC Financial Aid Office will not be accepting or conducting in-person appointments.  The 1400 building is now closed to the public.

We will be working remotely and serving students only via phone, email and zoom at this time. We will do our best to assist you in a timely manner. Please check your email as this is the main way our office will communicate with you.

Please email any forms, documents and/or questions to faidinfo@bigbend.edu. For the most up-to-date information on BBCC’s operating schedule, please visit our website at www.bigbend.edu/covid-19/.

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 Review” date. The “Ready to Review” date is assigned once all required documents have been received.

BBCC Financial aid is currently reviewing files completed by 02/19/2021 and prior for Spring 2021. 

FAFSAS AND WASFAS ARE NOW AVAILABLE FOR NEXT YEAR. APPLY NOW FOR YOUR 2021-2022 ACADEMIC YEAR (SUMMER 2021 – SPRING 2022)!
