Tuition Assistance Guidelines and Policies

  • Tuition Assistance is awarded on the basis of family financial circumstances.
  • In evaluating the amount of aid needed to meet tuition costs, the Tuition Assistance Committee takes into account the family’s other children (ages, schools they attend), additional dependents, all sources of income, household expenses, assets and debts.
  • The Tuition Assistance application process occurs at the same time as application for admissions. However, the decisions to accept and to award assistance are separate.
  • Tuition Assistance renewal applicants are given priority (applicant must meet the priority application deadline). Then, consideration is given to continuing students seeking aid for the first time who have met the priority application deadline.
  • Priority for Tuition Assistance to incoming students is given first to initial admits that meet the priority application deadline.
  • Renewal of Tuition Assistance is based on continued financial need, and new forms and tax returns must be submitted each year. All Tuition Assistance awards are contingent upon payment in full of the prior year’s account.
  • In the case of divorced or separated parents, both parents must submit financial information on the Smart Aid application. That can be done on one application or separate applications. Both parents must submit tax forms, W-2 or 1099 forms and paystubs to Smart Aid.
  • If one parent has no contact with the family, the custodial parent should submit third-party verification explaining the situation, (i.e. court documents, or other individual with knowledge of the situation).
