Federal Financial Aid

If you applied for Federal Aid (you must have filed both the FAFSA and BC Grad Financial Aid Form), you will be able to view your federal aid package in the Agora Portal beginning in early April.

If you are prompted to enter a Financial Aid Key to view your federal financial aid award, please contact the Office of Graduate Admission.

If you have any questions after reviewing your aid package, contact University Student Services at or 800-294-0294. Representatives can help you answer questions such as:

  • Once approved, when do the loans come in?
  • How would an assistantship affect my loan package?
  • What are my loan interest rates?

Please note:
  For financial aid purposes, full-time status requires graduate students to take a minimum of 9 credit hours. During the summer, full-time status is still 9 credit hours, but those hours can be taken over both summer sessions.
