Grants are financial aid awards that students do not have to repay. Students applying for grants must complete the
Free Application for Federal Student Aid.
General eligibility requirements must be satisfied by all students to receive grant assistance:
- must be citizens or permanent residents of the U.S.
- enrolled or accepted for enrollment at BU in a degree program
- continuing students must be maintaining satisfactory progress
- students cannot be in default of any federal loan program nor owe any refunds of federal grants
Students in default may have their eligibility restored if they have made satisfactory arrangements with the holder of the loan to repay it.
