Welcome to the Financial Aid Office! If you are like the majority of our students, financial aid means a lot to you and your family. You need it for college, and maybe even to supplement your living expenses.
We know how important that is for you, and we are here to help. We process federal and state financial aid for our students that attend Blue Ridge CTC every year, and we can help YOU! We will help guide you through the financial aid process, step by step.
We are available to you in a variety of methods: we are a phone call, an email, or a text away with answers to all of your questions. If you need more guidance or advice, you can set up an appointment to talk to one of our Financial Aid Advisors. It’s all about helping your understand what you need to do in order to achieve your educational goals.
If you are a degree or certificate-seeking student at Blue Ridge, we offer a variety of grant, work-study, loan, and scholarship-based resources, placing an Associate’s degree within reach. Research the resources available on the site and contact our financial aid team at 304-260-4380 or firstname.lastname@example.org to explore your financial options at Blue Ridge.
Bookstore credits are now open for the Fall semester through September 3, 2021. If your financial aid award is more than your tuition bill for the Fall semester, this means you will have access to use bookstore credits. Your account number will be your student ID number with a capital C.
