2024-2025 FAFSA is now live – Visit StudentAid.gov to start your free application today.

Financial Aid Awards for Fall 2024/Spring 2025 are not yet complete due to the delays in federal financial aid processing.  

Please note that some state grant funds, such as MassReconnect, MassGrantPlus and the Community College Nursing Scholarship, cannot be awarded until fees are assessed. At Bristol, this will take place July 1. This means that you may receive additional financial aid in the form of grants (free money!) after July 1!  

Tuition payments for summer are now due at time of registration. For fall, they are due August 8.

Welcome to Bristol’s Financial Aid Office

At Bristol our goal is to help make coming to college affordable and convenient.

If you’re like most people the big question is “how can I pay for my education”?

That’s where we come in.

Financial aid comes in a variety of forms such as grants, scholarships, waivers, loans and even student employment opportunities. You’ve probably heard the phrase “Financial Aid is available to those who qualify” and to see if you qualify, you’ll need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid FAFSA.

The FAFSA is a simple form to determine your eligibility based on your household income, family size and other information. The good news is that most students qualify for some form of financial aid and our financial aid counselors are here to help you every step of the way. The FAFSA application is the one form you need to apply for federal, state and other aid.

Financial Aid is only available to students admitted to an eligible degree or certificate program. At Bristol all of our associate degree programs are eligible for financial aid and many of our certificate programs are too. Your academic advisor can help you select a program of study that meets your educational and career goals, but you’ll get a good idea of what Bristol has to offer by reviewing our academic catalog.

Please feel free to browse our self-help videos on the FAFSA page for more information about applying for financial aid. You can complete the FAFSA on the web at www.studentaid.gov.

Bristol Community College school code for FAFSA: 002176
