From the very moment you arrive on campus. it will be evident that Blue Mountain College is truly "a place for people who want to make a difference".
If you are requesting financial assistance for your program of study at Blue Mountain College, there are a few very important steps:
Step 1. File a FAFSA (Free Application for Financial Student Aid) online at www.fafsa.gov
NOTE: No financial aid can be processed until the FAFSA is submitted.
Step 2. Apply for state Aid online at www.mississippi.edu
NOTE: Applicants can not request both MTPF and GTS -- Only one State Program may be chosen
Step 4. If further financial assistance is required, you may request a loan by filing a Loan Request Form available from the Office of Financial Aid.
If you have never requested a loan previously at Blue Mountain College, you are required to complete Entrance Counseling on-line at www.studentloans.gov. A
financial aid counselor can lead you through the quick process when the
loan request is submitted. Paper copies are available upon request.
For further information or assistance in completing the steps above, please feel free to contact us at the numbers below.
Again, congratulations and we look forward to seeing you on campus.
