Completing the FAFSA

To apply for federal student aid, such as federal grants, work-study, and loans, you need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). 


Complete the FAFSA at fafsa.ed.gov 

You can do this before you are accepted at BGU. BGU’s federal school code is 042278.


If you are selected for verification by the U.S. government you will be notified by email that additional documentation, such as W-2s, tax return transcripts, etc., are required to be submitted. 


If you make a mistake while filling out your FAFSA, or if there are inconsistencies in the information you submit, you may be asked to submit additional information via email. Your aid will not be finalized until all questions are resolved.
