How do we apply for facilitated tuition?

If you are interested in receiving facilitated tuition for your student for the 2017-2018 school year, you must apply online through FACTS. Facilitated tuition will only be granted to those completing this online application process. Families applying for Early Facilitated tuition must complete an online application and submit the necessary supporting documents to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment by December 31, 2016.

Please keep in mind that the requests for our facilitated tuition funds always exceed the amount available, so having your online application completed, including supporting documentation, by December 31, 2016 is very important.

What type of information will be required?

FACTS requires applicants to provide detailed information on income, investments and debt. Once an online application has been completed, the following information will need to be uploaded or sent to FACTS to complete the application process:

  • Copies of your most recent Federal tax forms including all supporting tax schedules.
