Financial Aid for Service Members

Financial Aid information for Service Members

Follow these guidelines to apply for and determine your federal student aid eligibility.

Please keep in mind that applying for federal student aid is separate from applying for your military benefits. Please be in contact with the BSC Veterans Services office to inquire about your benefits. You may apply for federal student aid in addition to receiving your military benefits.

Applying for aid:

Obtain your Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID) here. The FSA ID will act as your log in and electronic signature for your federal aid application.

Once you have applied for admission to Bismarck State College you are able to begin filling out your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The BSC Financial Aid office will reach out to you via your BSC email account and in Campus Connection on the next steps to receiving your aid.
