To receive financial aid, students must be accepted to BHSN and be registered for at least 6 semester hours (half time) each semester. Financial assistance available to students includes need-based federal grants and loans as well as institutional scholarships. Loans and merit based scholarships are also given without regard for financial need.

To apply for financial aid, a student must complete the Free Application for Financial Student Aid (FAFSA) by going to www.fafsa.ed.gov for the year the student plans to enroll. In order for the financial aid office at BHSN to determine a student’s eligibility for aid, the student must enter BHSN school code: 006181 on the FAFSA application. A student must be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen, registered for Selective Service, if required and not in default on a previous student loan or owe a refund of any Title IV grant program at any institution before the student can apply for aid.

BHSN does not establish priority deadlines. Aid is based on availability of funds and is given on a first-come, first-serve basis. All allowable educational expenses (direct and indirect) are considered when financial aid applications are reviewed.

Financial aid award letters are sent by the school to assist the student in meeting educational expenses. The student is responsible for information and conditions/terms of any awards. Repayment of any loans taken for any program at BHSN is the student’s responsibility.
