Financial Aid FAQs
Q: When should I apply for financial assistance?
A: Parents should begin the financial assistance application process once a completed enrollment application and registration fee are submitted. Promptly submitting the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment application on-line along with the following documents is critical to receiving a decision within the timeline.
- Payment of the $20 application fee.
- Copies of your 2010 or 2011 tax forms including all supporting tax schedules.
- Copies of your 2011 W-2 form for both parents.
- Copies of supporting documentation for Social Security Income, Welfare, Child Support, Food Stamps, Workers’ Compensation, and TANF.
Late submission jeopardizes the possibility of an award for your student since requests for assistance usually exceed the funds available.
Q: Does a request for financial assistance affect the admission decision?

Q: Only one parent works outside the home. Must both parents be employed to receive financial assistance?
