1. Apply to SCOPE

Your first step is to apply to BJU. You must be enrolled in a degree program to be eligible for financial aid.

2. Complete the FAFSA

If you wish to receive federal financial aid, complete the FAFSA and include BJU's school code (003421) on that form.

  • What is the FAFSA?

FAFSA stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Essentially, it’s the U.S. Department of Education’s way of qualifying which students are eligible for financial aid. We also use it to qualify students for aid from BJU.

The U.S. Department of Education uses the financial and family information provided on your FAFSA to determine your Expected Family Contribution (EFC). Your EFC represents the amount of money the Department of Education believes you and your family should be able to provide to help pay for your college expenses. This amount is not what you will pay, but what money may be available for you to contribute. You will be notified of your EFC number when you receive confirmation of the submission of your FAFSA.

The EFC number is used by the Department of Education to determine your level of need for financial aid assistance. The lower your EFC the more need-based aid, such as the Pell Grant, may be available to you.

Submitting the FAFSA also establishes your eligibility for federal loans. Your EFC helps to determine the type of loan money, subsidized or unsubsidized, that is available to you. For more information about federal loans, go to


  • How do I complete the FAFSA

  • What if I’m selected for FAFSA verification?

What is verification?

Verification is a process by which the information on the FAFSA is checked for accuracy. A student’s FAFSA can be selected for verification by the U.S. Department of Education or by the school. About 30-40% of all FAFSA’s sent to BJU are generally selected.

How do I get selected for verification?

The reasons for being selected include but are not limited to the following:

  • Your FAFSA was randomly selected. (Chances of random selection increase if you are a potential Pell grant recipient.)
  • Your FAFSA includes incomplete information.
  • The information on your FAFSA is contradictory.
  • The tax information on your FAFSA was estimated.


What happens if I am selected?

The BJU Financial Aid Office will contact you if your FAFSA is selected for verification. Your financial aid awards cannot be determined until the BJU E-Verification process has been completed. Create an account and view your tasks.

Tax Transcript

If you are selected for verification, you may verify your tax information in one of the following ways:

  1. Use the IRS Data Retrieval to update the tax information directly from the IRS.
  2. Submit an official IRS tax transcript to the Financial Aid Office


If you have any questions concerning financial aid, email the Financial Aid Office.


3. Register for Your Classes

Once you've registered for classes, the Financial Aid office will review your application for eligibility and send you a financial aid offer. It will list all of the federal, state, and institutional aid you are eligible to receive.
