Although phone calls are welcomes, please know that during peak times (August and September) it will be difficult to reach anyone in the Office of Financial Aid.

The majority of your questions can be answered through your BCC Portal Account (ie: FA Status, Awards, Requested Documents, etc) or Bergen email account. We also have a Q&A section on our webpage which may be helpful. We ask that you be patient during these times so that we may serve all of our students.
