A fundamental principle of student financial aid is that students and their families have the primary responsibility for financing the cost of higher education. Student financial assistance programs are designed to help defray those costs, which remain after the resources of the student, and the student’s family has been taken into consideration.
Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital School of Nursing offers a number of financial aid programs to help students with their educational needs. Financial Aid is awarded on a needs basis and on the availability of financial aid resources. No student should be discouraged from attending BHSN due to limited financial resources.
All students requesting financial aid must first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This may be done online at: www.fafsa.ed.gov. A new FAFSA is required for each financial aid year.
In order to be eligible to receive financial aid from BHSN, a student must meet the following standards:
Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital School of Nursing has been approved by the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education to provide training for eligible persons under the Montgomery GI Bill Program® for Chapter 30, Chapter 35, Chapter 1606 and Chapter 1607 Post 09/11 Chapter 33. Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital School of Nursing does not participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program. Please contact our Registrar’s Office for further information.
