Financial Aid & SALT

The Financial Aid Office at Brookdale Community College is here to assist students, and their families. Emphasis is placed on the electronic process of applying for financial aid, giving students and families the links to the latest financial aid web sites, and providing students with the ability to check their financial aid status online. Karyn Arnold, Associate Director of the Financial Aid Office, recorded this video to walk you through the services available at Brookdale.

SALT educates, empowers and engages students to truly own their finances by making it both rewarding and easy to make smart decisions about their money and student loan borrowing.
