The COVID-19 situation in our State and County is changing daily. Financial aid services will be conducted online and staff will be working remotely. The Financial aid operation is continuing all processing and communication to students via Brookdale email as well as monitoring and responding to the Financial Aid Office email. You also have the option to use this link to upload your documents to a secure email. If you send documents to the FA Office email please include your student ID# BUT DO NOT SEND personally identifiable information including your SS#, or date of birth in your correspondence.
All Financial Aid questions are also available by calling the One Stop call center at 732-224-2020 between 8:30 and 5:00, Monday thru Friday. If they are unable to answer your questions, they will contact a Financial aid Specialist who will respond to you within 24 hours. Please stay healthy and practice social distancing!
Financial Aid at Brookdale
The mission of the Office of Financial Aid is to increase opportunities for student access in higher education, to succeed by helping students and their families seek, obtain, and make the best use of all financial resources. We will work together to provide service in a timely, equitable and caring manner, in full support of the community, College, and comply with all governing agencies. Emphasis is placed on the electronic steps of applying for financial aid, providing students links to the latest financial aid web sites, and providing students with the ability to check their financial aid status online.
Brookdale Community College is an Equal Opportunity educational institution. In order to promote this goal, the College makes positive efforts to ensure equal opportunity to all individuals without regard to race, color, sex, religion, national origin, disability or veteran status.
We at Brookdale encourage all current and perspective students to file a FAFSA. Doing so may provide opportunities to assist you in financing your education and is worth the effort. If you need assistance with completing your FAFSA, schedule an appointment with a FAFSA Coach here.
- 2021-2022 – If you are applying for financial aid for classes you attend between September 2021 and July 2022, you must complete the 2021-2022 FAFSA. Remember, students must have completed their Admissions process and entered their social security number on their Admissions Application before they can receive notification from the Financial Aid Office. Processing will begin in April. If you do not have a Social Security number complete the Alternative FAFSA.
- 2020-2021 – If you are applying for financial aid for classes you attend between September 2020 and July 2021, you must complete the 2020-2021 FAFSA.
