Tuition Assistance





To be considered for financial assistance, a family with an incoming freshman or returning upperclassman, must complete and submit a FACTS financial aid application online.

FACTS Information: All families applying for tuition assistance must do so by completing the FACTS online Financial Aid Application.

An online application can be completed by accessing FACTS online.  FACTS will request additional tax documentation to be used in the verification process.  Please have your most recent tax return and W-2 statements ready to upload. The online application (including required tax documents) should be completed by November 10, 2017 for all current and incoming students.
