Financial Aid


<p>I was accepted today and I wasn’t notified of any financial aid, nor is there any award on my agora. Any idea of when I can expect notification?</p>


<p>They'll probably update Agora once all the letters have been sent out. So maybe in a couple of days.</p>

<p>This weekend, you should be able to see it on the Agora.</p>

<p>Hi everybody!
I have a quick question!
On Agora, it says that they want a CUSTODIAL Business Tax Return and a STUDENT Business/Farm Supplement to complete my financial aid application. But my parents don't own a business, and I own neither a farm nor a business. I plan to call them tomorrow, but I don't want to accidentally ask a stupid question. Does anyone here know what I should do?</p>

<p>Thanks for your answers!</p>


<p>A similar situation happened with me. My dad doesn't file taxes due to disability, and they didn't decide on any award for me yet because they were waiting for me to send in his W2 and 1040 forms. I called today and I just have to fax in a form (apparently BC has their own non-tax filer form, I thought the IDOC one was sufficient). They said it will take "several weeks" to come up with an award notification, though. Several weeks better mean before May 1, or I'm screwed (unless I get into an Ivy next week, highly doubtful).</p>

<p>Anyway, call 1-800-294-0294 and they should be able to help you out.</p>

<p>^^ ****, thanks, i thought that the idoc would have covered that as well.</p>

<p>they shhould have explained it more</p>

<p>Thanks, PatK! I'm probably going to call them during school tomorrow because of the three hour difference.</p>

<p>By the way, I noticed that people have found out how many years of housing they got. How do I find out? I logged into Agora, but I didn't see anything. Maybe I'm checking too late at night?</p>

<p>Number of years of housing was in the acceptance letter in the mail.</p>

<p>I must have read right over that housing info.......I'll have to check it out again.</p>

<p>Thank You PATK! I am in the same situation as you. I have one more question though. What is the eagle ID Number? I have been accepted to BC, I just don't know what that # means.</p>

<p>Dear Fig-NEwtonZ : Your eagle ID number is your BC "social security" number. It is your code for most of the financial systems and such.</p>

<p>Haha, sorry for not being clear. I didn't mean to ask what it means. I want to know where I can find that number. Is it my username the agora website, my password, or my Financial Aid access Key?</p>

<p>Hi, I'm sorry for asking the same question, but where exactly is the housing info? I looked through the two sheets of paper (the acceptance letter and the Agora login instructions paper) and the "Boston College Welcomes You" booklet but there's nothing in either of them about housing. Could anyone tell me specifically where it states the number of years of housing? I probably just missed it, but I really can't find it anywhere. Thanks so much!</p>

<p>Oops, I found the housing info! (:</p>

<p>But another thing is quite strange; the booklet says that if I am "interested in special interest housing, please complete the enclosed application and return it in the Admission Response Documents envelope." I have no "enclosed application" or an "Admission Response Documents envelope," does anyone else?</p>

<p>It's online. </p>

<p>Read more carefully.</p>

<p>does anyone else have their financial aid out? or is there posts of when financial aid will come out? cuz when i go on agora i just have my 6 tabs but when i click on the finaid notification, it says that i don't have any presented just yet or whatever. i've read that some people already have their finaid award.. so i'm confused. help?</p>
