Tuition FAQ

I will be applying for Tuition Assistance. What if I don’t know my tuition payment for next year?

When a completed Tuition Assistance application and supporting documents are submitted and verified before April 20th, the student’s enrollment becomes contingent upon acceptance of Tuition Assistance. Tuition Assistance will only be awarded when accounts are current.

If the Tuition Assistance award does not work for the family, continuous enrollment payments are refundable, less $25, only if the tuition assistance application is complete and the deadline has been met.

When can I apply for Tuition Assistance?

Currently, enrolled families may apply for Tuition Assistance anytime after January 1st. The application must be completed and verified by FACTS Grant and Aid by the April 20th deadline.

Tuition Assistance award letters are sent to current families after the first Continuous Enrollment payment installment is paid in February.

Tuition Assistance application fees are paid directly to FACTS Grant and Aid, a third-party company, and are non-refundable.
