All grants, loans and scholarships are available for a student’s
tuition, fees, and bookstore charges when their financial aid file is complete
and the awards have been posted to their Brazosport College account. The amount of
financial aid a student receives is based on their enrollment status, and
awards will be adjusted accordingly. A course’s eligibility for financial aid
purposes is based on its start date, i.e. a Fall flex entry or Spring flex entry
course will not be included in a student’s enrollment status until that
particular course begins. Therefore, a student’s enrollment status can change
throughout the 16 week semester and their grants will be adjusted accordingly.
Students who fail to establish eligibility (do not begin attendance in each
class or do not attend classes through the official count day) will have their
financial assistance reduced or cancelled. Students who completely withdraw
before 60% of the semester is completed may also have their aid reduced.
All financial aid awards will first be applied to the balance due
Brazosport College before being issued to the student. Financial aid balances will
be disbursed to the student’s designated direct deposit account or the student's MyBC ID Card. Students who have not designated a direct deposit account or have not received a MyBC ID Card will have a limited time to pick up a check in the Cashier's Office before it will be mailed to the address on record with Brazosport College.
Please allow 24-48 hours for your direct disbursement to process to
