Financial Aid Process for Prospective Students
Please note that if you don’t apply for financial aid in your child’s initial year, you will need to wait three years before applying again, as it can be difficult to allocate financial aid in our budget once we have already committed support to families. We will strive to make exceptions in the event of an unforeseen hardship which results in a significant change in a family’s available income/assets.
General Notes Regarding our Financial Aid Process
Aid awards are conditional on receiving the completed application and all relevant documents. Financial Aid is awarded on the basis of financial need, and is distributed as equitably as possible based on an analysis of each family’s income, assets, and other relevant financial criteria. We will take all relevant data into account when evaluating your family’s financial aid request. Families receiving financial aid may be eligible to receive non-tuition aid to support the student’s participation in school activities that further their educational experience. Non-tuition aid is based on demonstrated need and availability of funding. Applications for tuition-based financial aid are evaluated on an annual basis but non-tuition financial aid requests are evaluated throughout the academic year. All applications for aid are treated in the strictest confidence. Any issues or questions that arise during the application process can be addressed by the Finance Office.
