Applying for Tuition Assistance

2018-2019 School Year

Application Overview
  • To apply for tuition assistance, families must complete an online application.
  • The application and all associated documents will be accessed from, submitted to and analyzed by FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment.
  • If you have both a returning student AND a son who is applying as a freshman, you only need to submit one tuition assistance application.
  • The submission deadline for freshman applicants and returning students is February 7, 2018. The deadline for transfer applicants is April 20, 2018.

You MUST submit your FACTS application online. An overview of the process and step-by-step instructions are included on the FACTS website. For your convenience, the overview is also available HERE.  Please review this information, as well as our Frequently Asked Questions, before beginning the process. Access the online application via the Apply for Tuition Assistance button in the right-hand column of this page or by clicking HERE.

NOTE: The Family Monthly Budget Planner and 4506T Form are required components of the application process. The FACTS site will direct you to this page to download the documents. They are both included in the RESOURCES section of this page (in the right-hand column). Save a copy of the documents to your computer and submit to FACTS once you have entered the required data.

NOTE: Don't date the 4506T form when signing and submitting. The form will expire 120 days from any date specified, and we won't have reviewed it, in many cases, until after that point.   

You may log in to your FACTS user account to review the status of your application. Please allow two weeks processing time from the date you provided the supporting documents before inquiring further about receipt and/or status of the uploaded/faxed/mailed documents.  

If you have questions or concerns about the application process, you may speak with a FACTS Customer Care Representative at (866) 441-4637.

Application Deadline

The application due date for freshman applicants (and returning students) is February 7, 2018. The due date for transfer applicants is April 20, 2018.

Failure to include all supporting documents along with the $27 application fee by the deadline date could jeopardize the request for financial assistance.

Notification of Assistance

Newly-accepted students will be notified of the amount awarded in conjunction with the admissions acceptance process - incoming freshmen: mid March 2018; incoming transfer students: mid-May 2018. Returning students will be notified in late April 2018.
