Money Management Information

The Office of Student Financial Aid & Scholarships feels that it is very important for you and your family to make sound financial decisions while attending BRCC. In order to assist you with financial planning we have provided you the opportunity to view what we believe are comprehensive yet easy to understand resources.   Visit our Money Mangement Web Site @  http://www.cashcourse.org/brcc/Default.aspx

Withdrawing from School – Will I owe money back?

If you officially or unofficially (drop-out) withdraw during a semester, the amount of financial aid that you have earned up to that point is calculated by a specific formula, known as Return of Title IV Aid. Federal regulations require Blue Ridge Community College to have a written policy for the refund and repayment of federal aid received by students who withdraw during a term for which payment has been received. These policies are effective only if the student completely terminates enrollment (i.e., cancels his/her registration, withdraws, or is dismissed) or stops attending classes before completing more than 60 percent of the enrollment period. If you receive more assistance than you earned, the excess funds must be returned. For more information click here

Attending Class is Important!

Yes, if you receive financial aid there is a requirement to attend class.  If you are reported by your instructor as never attending class then your financial aid awards will be adjusted accordingly.  So, make sure to go to class.

Student Aid Communication

The Office of Student Financial Aid & Scholarships uses the BRCC Student Email System and MYBRCC to communicate official financial aid information to students.  We encourage students to monitor and use their BRCC email accounts as important financial aid information will be emailed throughout the academic year.  Visit MYBRCC and check you email today!
