Financial Aid

The Bergen Community College Office of Financial Aid is within the Student Services Division and seeks to provide high quality service that consistently exceeds the expectations of students and families.



Our primary objective is to assist students in planning for and meeting expenses associated with attendance at BCC. We focus on establishing aid eligibility, awarding grants, loans, and employment and providing financial aid counseling for the resolution of problems associated with financing an education. We serve as the primary advocate for students, assisting them in securing necessary financial resources.

We are committed to providing exemplary service to our students, the BCC community, and the community at large. We believe our talented staff will make the difference and help us realize our vision.

The process for obtaining financial aid requires multiple steps.
