Financial Aid (FAFSA)

FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)

The FAFSA is required to be completed by all college-bound students intending to enroll full or part-time at an accredited 2 year or 4 year college/university upon graduation.  Parent/guardian assistance is required to complete the form, as detailed tax information must be provided to determine financial need, grants, loans, etc.

  • Access to the application begins October 1st
  • ***Scholarship awards cannot be accepted if the FAFSA has not been completed***
BLHS also partners with MTC staff to assist students and families in answering FAFSA and financial aid related questions.
