This page provides information on the financial aid application process. (See Steps 1 to 6 below for detailed information.)
At Broward College, students must be admitted to an eligible degree or certificate program of study in order to be offered financial aid. To maintain eligibility students must meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards. It should also be noted that one's enrollment can affect their aid amount, and that only classes that are recognized as being truly required for degree completion will be used to calculate eligibility for Title IV funds.
*If the information you put on your FAFSA does not accurately reflect your current circumstances you may want to review the "Special Circumstances" tab on our 'Forms
' page once you have already completed and submitted the application. Please note that not all special circumstances justify a review of your eligibility, and any request for a review must be accompanied by proper documentation etc. Reviews are done on a case-by-case basis and approval is not guaranteed.
*Starting July 1, 2015, the omnibus funding bill reinstates an Ability To Benefit retroactive to July 1, 2014 allowing students enrolled in certain programs without a high school diploma or GED access to aid. Additional information will be posted as it becomes available.
