Financial Aid and Other Information

Grants: Federal Pell Grant and State Need Grant

Most students will qualify for two types of grants (which do not have to be paid back): the Federal Pell Grant and the State Needs Grant. Students who receive food benefits typically qualify for both grants. Low-interest subsidized student loans are also offered to offset a student’s basic needs, such as rent. Loans are part of the federal financial aid package, but they have to be paid back.

Federal Student Aid: Free Application for Federal Student Aid-FASFA

BFET requires all students, except GED, HS21+ and ESL students, to complete FAFSA. FAFSA application is online. Find out more at Student Financial Services.

BFET provides students with tuition and book support as they complete the financial aid process.

To apply for BFET, call 425.640.1727 or follow the application steps.

All important information from the college, including BFET, will be sent via your EdMail account.
