Need-based tuition assistance is granted to families based on a financial need assessment by an independent third party, Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST), using a formula that takes into account family income, size, and other factors. Families requesting tuition assistance apply on-line and provide complete copies of tax form 1040 and all supporting tax documentation. Separate applications and tax documents are required for both parents in divorced or separated situations. Tuition assistance is reviewed annually and does not automatically carry over from prior year.
Note: Tuition assistance applications completed by April 8 will be given priority consideration. Thereafter, funds will be awarded as they are available.
