How To Apply
To apply for financial aid you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This form is available online at www.fafsa.gov. Be sure you are selecting the correct academic year when applying for the FAFSA.
Title IV Code for Bridgewater State College
002183 (for use in Step 6 of the FAFSA to ensure that the student’s information is released to Bridgewater State University.)
Freshmen / Upperclassmen
Initially, all you must do to apply is file the FAFSA, listing Bridgewater State University as a college to receive information. However, you may be asked to verify certain information that you provided on the FAFSA. You may receive letters from the university requesting additional documentation to clarify information on the FAFSA. Be sure to respond immediately to these requests to ensure your eligibility for all aid available to you.
If you are a graduate student receiving a graduate assistantship or any allowance for tuition, fees, room or board, you are legally obligated to report the allowance to the Financial Aid Office. Graduate students are eligible for student loans only.
Reapplication for Financial Aid
You must reapply for financial aid each year. The Department of Education no longer mails renewal applications to students, however, electronic renewal FAFSA forms are available on their website at www.fafsa.gov. You are always welcome to complete a FAFSA form even if a renewal application is not available to you. Our deadline for priority consideration is the same each year - March 1.
