Financial Aid

Boston College remains committed to admitting students solely on the basis of their academic and personal accomplishments, and without regard to financial need. Boston College makes every effort to supplement family resources for students who require financial assistance. All Boston College grants and scholarships awarded by the Office of Student Services are awarded on the basis of institutional need. Boston College is committed meeting the full demonstrated institutional need of every student applying for financial aid.

We know that applying for financial aid can be a confusing and lengthy process. We hope that the resources provided on this site will give you and your family the tools and information necessary to help make a Boston College education possible. The financial aid staff is committed to working with you as you navigate this process.
