Remember, some forms of aid such as Pell Grants are awarded in addition to your Post-9/11 GI Bill® benefits so be sure to fill out your FASA forms.

Yellow Ribbon Participation Could Not Be Determined

Unfortunately, it looks like Bergen Community College does not participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program. If you have tuition and fees charges that are not covered by your Post-9/11 benefits, you will have to pay some tuition out of pocket unless you qualify for other financial aid.

Questions to Ask the Admissions Department

  • Which programs and majors (if any) participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program and how do I apply?

Per Credit Fees and the Active Duty Tuition Assistance Cap

With a per credit charge for in-state students of $301, Bergen Community College falls above the tuition assistance cap of $250 for active duty personnel.

Below Cap for State Residents?$301 per creditis not below tuition assistance cap
Below Cap for Non Residents (Out of State)?$317 per creditis not below tuition assistance cap
Almost all public colleges treat full-time non-resident veterans as in-state students. You should check with Bergen Community College to see if that policy is true for part-time students as well.
