Refunds of excess financial aid
Your actual financial aid dollars will be credited to your account during the middle of the semester after your enrollment level has been verified, book charges have been added to your account and all NA grades have been reported by your professors. If your financial aid results in a credit, you will be refunded this difference. This generally happens in early April for the spring semester.
Student Payments No Longer Accepting Cash Payments
To ensure the safety of our student payments staff, the College will no longer be accepting cash payments at the Student Payment window. BHCC accepts payments via personal check, money order, American Express, VISA, MasterCard and Discover.
We hope you are having a great semester!
Get ready for some exciting changes to help make navigating Financial Aid, Student Payment and Academic Records more efficient! BHCC Student Central, scheduled to open later this year, will combine all of these services into one easy-access location, with friendly and knowledgeable staff to help guide you every step of the way. You’ll be able to spend less time moving from window-to-window and spend more time on things like schoolwork, career planning and other important everyday activities.
Student Central will be both a physical and virtual space, so you can also find easy access to information and services online from anywhere.
