The Office of Financial Aid is dedicated to assisting all students in finding the financial means necessary for the attainment of their educational goals. We are committed to creating a friendly, Christian-focused, professional and effective customer service environment to better serve Native American and other students and the Bacone community.
Types of Aid
Bacone College offers need-based and achievement-based aid. Need-based aid depends on a family's financial resources. Merit-based aid is awarded for academic achievement and particular talents.
Students need to have a plan for meeting their college expenses, before they register and begin attending classes. The beginning point for this is the Financial Aid office. Once a Financial Aid Award letter has been presented to a student, the student will know what portion of his/her account the student is responsible to pay.

Extremely Important Information for Students and Parents When Completing the 2012-13 FAFSA!
BACONE COLLEGE OFFICE OF FINANCIAL AID ANNOUNCES DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION CHANGES WHEN COMPLETING THE 2012-13 FAFSA!
1. If you and/or your parents are required to file a 2011 federal tax return, you are encouraged to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) when completing your 2012-13 FAFSA after filing your 2011 federal tax return(s). This allows you to transfer your federal tax data directly to your FAFSA. The benefit of utilizing the IRS Data Retrieval Tool is that it will simplify and expedite the FAFSA verification review process, if your 2012-13 is selected for review.
2. File your 2011 federal tax return first, then:
- Electronically filed 2011 federal tax return data will be available online from the IRS site in 1-2 weeks;
- Data from mailed in 2011 federal tax returns will be available in 6-8 weeks.
3. If you and/or your parents do not use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT), please be aware we can no longer accept signed copies of federal tax forms and we are only allowed to accept official IRS tax return transcripts if you are selected for verification after your FAFSA is processed and you did not use the DRT. In addition, if you changed your answers to the income questions on the FAFSA after using the DRT you are required to submit an official IRS tax return transcript, if selected for verification.
