Subject: BHCC Student Central Newsletter: Register Now for Summer Classes!

Make the summer count! Registration for summer courses is now open for all students. Taking a course or two over the summer can help make sure you stay on track with your degree—and it gets you one step closer to graduation. Payment is due at the time of registration. If you have financial aid, you will see it in your account; otherwise, log into SelfService and make a payment to lock in your courses.

REMINDER: Do you need to withdraw from a course for this semester? You will need to meet with an advisor in LifeMap. Tomorrow, April 6, is the deadline for withdrawal.

Have a great week!

Priority Deadlines for 2017-2018 FAFSA:
Priority Deadline 1: 5/1/17 to make Mass Grant deadline
Priority Deadline 2: 7/21/17 to have an award before the bill due date (8/7/17)
Priority Deadline 3: 8/18/17 to have an award by the start of classes

Refunds of excess financial aid
Your actual financial aid dollars will be credited to your account during the middle of the semester after your enrollment level has been verified, book charges have been added to your account and all NA grades have been reported by your professors. If your financial aid results in a credit, you will be refunded this difference. This generally happens in early April for the spring semester.

Student Payments No Longer Accepting Cash Payments
To ensure the safety of our student payments staff, the College will no longer be accepting cash payments at the Student Payment window. BHCC accepts payments via personal check, money order, American Express, VISA, MasterCard and Discover.

We hope you are having a great semester!
