Undergraduate Financial Aid

All financial aid awarded by Student Services at Boston College is need-based. 

Need-based aid assumes that the parents and the student are responsible for the cost of education to the extent of their abilities and that financial aid will be used to supplement the effort of the family. It also assumes that need can be calculated with uniformity and equity, meaning that income and assets are defined in the same way for everyone and all allowances are nondiscretionary in nature. 

Boston College uses two separate aid formulas to determine eligibility for financial assistance.
