SSI) are eligible for BOG-A. Proper documentation must be provided to the Financial
Aid office to receive BOG-A.
BOG-B - Eligibility for BOG-B is based on household size and total family income for the
calendar year preceding the academic year for which the student is applying.
BOG-C - In order to be eligible for BOG-C, you must complete a Free Application for Federal
Student Aid (FAFSA) and have demonstrated financial need as determined by the Financial
Aid office. You can complete the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.gov.

Fire Academy Student
"The academy has shown me a lot more than I even suspected. It's showed me the physical demands that you need to reach and the instructors push you over the limits just so that when go to do the real thing you can achieve that. You'll push yourself and eventually reach the limits that you thought you were never capable of. You get really hands-on with all your crew and working with each of the instructors. The most valuable thing that I've learned in the academy is learning to work to your own level of excellence. Being at the college has been a great experience."
