Need Based Tuition Assistance 
For those families who cannot afford the full cost of tuition, our need-based Tuition Assistance Program was established to ensure access and opportunity to families from a range of socio-economic backgrounds. These grants can range from a few thousand dollars to a full award based on the individual need of the family.  Many factors are taken into account including income, assets, cost of living, family size and siblings in tuition-charging schools.  We strive to fund full demonstrated need, but can not support lifestyle choices.  
To be considered for need-based Tuition Assistance, qualified applicants must complete the Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) from School and Student Services (SSS) and submit official copies of your previous years Federal Tax  Form 1040 and all supporting tax schedules and your current W-2.
As you prepare your application for tuition assistance, please keep in mind these important dates:
  • November 1: Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) can be filed online
  • December 31: Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) Due for all applicants.  
If you have any questions please contact the Office of Admission at (203) 801-4834 or by email at and we will guide you through the process.
