Our mission in the Financial Aid Office is to assist you and your family in affording the cost of your college education. This is accomplished through the awarding of grants, loans, and student work programs and by providing you with a supportive and comfortable environment where financial aid counselors will work with you in obtaining the necessary funds you may need to attend BSU.
