Generally, a scholarship will be credited to a recipient’s student account in the next academic year or semester, unless otherwise noted, after the scholarship is awarded. For example, if you receive a scholarship in the spring semester, your student account will be credited in October upon your return to Bucks for the fall semester. If you decide not to enroll or do not meet the eligibility criteria at that time, the scholarship will be awarded to another student or be returned to the scholarship fund.

What do you need to do to apply for a financial need-based scholarship?
For financial need-based scholarships, students are responsible to file the appropriate FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) prior to completing a scholarship application.
How does BCCC determine financial need?
To determine financial need, students must complete the appropriate academic year's FAFSA for Bucks. Financial need is calculated by subtracting the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and any other financial aid from a student's cost of attendance. If anything is left over, you are considered to have financial need. For more information about financial aid eligibility see our criteria and requirements, or contact Financial Aid at 215-968-8200.
