3. Submit Application Materials for Financial Aid (if applicable)

Families interested in applying for tuition assistance should do so at the same time they apply for admission. Families that do not desire tuition assistance can skip to step 3.

The application for tuition assistance should take about an hour and will require parents to submit several different pieces of financial information. Each page of the application can be saved separately.
