The financial aid office is processing aid for the 2013-2014 academic year. The priority deadline for students enrolled at BCTC in the Fall 2013 semester is July 15, 2013. Students should monitor their KCTCS email account for important information. All financial aid correspondence, including award notifications and missing information requests, will be sent to KCTCS email addresses. To view your financial aid awards, log in to your student self-service. For more information about Financial Aid and the types of awards available, please read our Award Information page. If you have not submitted the 2013-2014 FAFSA, you should do so immediately.
If you were selected for FAFSA Verification you should submit your forms immediately. The completion of the Verification process is not optional and must be completed before any financial aid awards will be offered. The failure to submit verification in a timely manner may delay disbursements and could prevent a student from utilizing bookstore charge dates.
Students that were selected for FAFSA Verification and would like to meet one-on-one with a counselor may schedule an appointment June 17-20. Please remember that the priority deadline for students enrolled at BCTC in the Fall 2013 semester is July 15, 2013.
Students may use this form to request a SAP Academic Plan-of-Action Advising Form in the absence of their regular advisor during the summer term. Your request will be forwarded to a BCTC advisor, who will provide you with a Program Curriculum Sheet listing the classes required to earn a specific BCTC credential. You must submit that document as part of your appeal.
With the launch of the new Student Services Center, BCTC's Financial Aid Office contact information has changed. The new phone number for Financial Aid is (855) 246-2477 (toll free). The new email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for priority consideration has passed, but it is not too late to turn in your 13-14 Scholarship Application. Visit the scholarship webpage to view scholarship opportunities and download the most recent application. If you are receiving an external scholarship or other financial resource to pay for your education, you must report the award to the Financial Aid Office using the Additonal Resources form.
Think Again! Did you know that dropping ALL of your classes or failing ALL your classes could mean that the Financial Aid Office may ask you to repay some or all of your financial aid awards? It's a federal requirement! BCTC has many resources to help you through the semester. Review the R2T4 webpage before you make that decision!
Federal guidelines for Federal Financial Aid requires BCTC to make sure that all students choose an approved program plan or major by the time they attempt 30 credit hours. If a student does not choose an approved program plan or major after attempting 30 credit hours, he or she is no longer eligible to receive Federal Financial Aid including student loans.
