Applying for Tuition Assistance

2019-2020 School Year

Application Overview
  • To apply for tuition assistance, families must complete an online application. The application and all associated documents will be accessed from, submitted to and analyzed by FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment.
  • The FACTS application opens on November 18, 2019.
  • If you have both a returning student AND a son who is applying as a freshman, you only need to submit one tuition assistance application
  • The application due date for incoming freshman applicants (and returning students) is February 3, 2020. The application due date for transfer applicants is April 17, 2020.

You MUST submit your FACTS application online. An overview of the process and step-by-step instructions are included on the FACTS website. Please review this information, as well as our Frequently Asked Questions, before beginning the process. Access the online application via the Apply for Tuition Assistance button in the right-hand column of this page or by clicking HERE.

After you submit the application and pay the $27 application fee, you will be prompted to upload supporting documentation.  

NOTE: The Family Monthly Budget Planner and 4506T are required components of the application process. The FACTS site will direct you to this page to download the documents. They are included in the RESOURCES section of the page (in the right-hand column). Save a copy of the documents to your computer and submit to FACTS once you have entered the required data.

NOTE: Don't date the 4506T form when signing and submitting. The form will expire 120 days from any date specified, and we won't have reviewed it, in many cases, until after that point. 

Application Deadline

The application due date for returning students (and freshman applicants) is February 3, 2020. The due date for transfer applicants is April 17, 2020.

Failure to include all supporting documents along with the $27 application fee by the deadline date could jeopardize the request for financial assistance.

Notification of Assistance

Newly-accepted students will be notified of the amount awarded in conjunction with the admissions acceptance process - incoming freshmen: mid-March 2020; incoming transfer students: mid-May 2020.
