Applying for Financial Aid

Applying for financial aid at The Boston Architectural College (BAC) is a simple process that begins with the completion of the FAFSA each year. The priority deadline for applications is April 15. While students may complete the FAFSA throughout the academic year, applying by the priority deadline ensures consideration for the best possible financial aid package. Although some of our limited financial aid funds may be exhausted after the priority deadline, many students are eligible for federal student loans.

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
The FAFSA is used to apply for federal, state, and need-based institutional aid. Sources of need-based aid include federal and state grants. As the name implies, there is no charge for completing this form. The FAFSA is now available October 1 and income information from the previous year is used.

Applying Online
Complete the FAFSA online. Please be sure to list The Boston Architectural College's school code of 003966 to insure that the FAFSA will be received by the school within three business days after completion. Please be sure that both the student and parent (if applicable) sign the FAFSA. Paper FAFSA applications are also available for students; however it is recommended that students complete the process online for ease and speed.

Verification
Your 2017–2018 FAFSA may be selected for review in a process called Verification. Per federal regulations, we must confirm and verify that specific information you provided on the FAFSA is accurate. Your FAFSA information may need to be corrected if there are any discrepancies. The Financial Aid Office will notify selected students via email listing any verification forms that may need to be completed or documents that may need to be submitted to the Financial Aid Office. If you have any questions about the financial aid application process, please don't hesitate to contact us. Please call 617.585.0125 or email finaid@the-bac.edu.
