Funding a Seminary Education

The time has come to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for fiscal year 2021/2022. To qualify for federal aid (grants, loans, etc.), you must meet certain eligibility requirements such as U.S. citizenship, as well as being enrolled and/or accepted into an eligible degree or certificate program.

If you are a current student and you have not completed your FAFSA, please do so at your earliest convenience. You may be eligible to receive federal loans to help with your educational cost. Please log in to https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa to complete your FAFSA application. The first step is to receive your Federal Student Aid Identification code. To obtain the code log in to the link above and follow the step-by-step instructions.

Also, contact the assistant financial aid director, Sabrina Perkins, at (510) 841-1905 ext. 227 sperkins@bst.edu to gather additional information.
