Congratulations on your acceptance to Bethune-Cookman University! We are so excited to have you join the Wildcat family this fall. To assist with completing your enrollment and to better experience our website, please utilize Google Chrome.

Step 1 - Submit enrollment commitment fee of $200 (non-refundable)

Please submit your enrollment fee via one of the following methods below:

  • Log into your initial application portal at apply.cookman.edu and click “pay deposit.” (faster and preferred)
  • Cashier’s Office at 386-481-2292 (please provide your B-CU ID)
  • Online via our payment center website with your B-CU ID here

 

Step 2 - Complete your FAFSA

The key to the best financial aid award, including Pell Grants, Federal Work-Study, and student loans is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible. FAFSA will be available to complete in December 2023.  For more information, please visit https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa. Be sure to add Bethune-Cookman University (FAFSA code: 001467). Once complete and you are awarded, you can view your awards online by logging into Wildcat Web and navigating to the financial aid tab (choose Financial Aid Online). For more information regarding applying for additional scholarships, you can navigate to Scholarship Universe in the same area.

International students must document their ability to meet all educational and living expenses for the first year of their intended study before this University can issue a Certificate of Visa Eligibility (form I-20 or DS-2019) per immigration regulations. Although you must only show proof for the first year of study, funding must be available for your entire course of study from your personal or sponsored funding sources. International students are NOT eligible for financial aid and U.S. Federal immigration regulations severely restrict international student employment so students should not expect to subsidize their studies by earning income in the United States. To get started, please see the documentation requirements here

Please submit your housing application via the Wildcat Housing and Residence Life Portal

  1. Login by entering your B-CU ID# in the Username field, and your WildCab Web password in the Password field.
