Yes, because family finances and assets may change from year to year, grants are allocated on an annual basis for one year only. Every year families must reapply if they wish to be considered for financial aid.
In extending a financial aid grant to a family, The Center attempts to support the student's attendance for the entire time they are enrolled, pending continued need. If your financial circumstances change, and your ability to contribute to your child's educational expenses increases, your grant may be decreased accordingly. If your ability to pay educational expenses decreases, The Center will make every effort to increase the grant.
Yes. Families who receive financial aid are required to enroll in The Center’s Ten-Payment Tuition Plan via the Automatic Debit Program. This requires completing an automatic debit form by each parent/custodian responsible for paying the student’s tuition.
Tuition payments through the Automatic Debit Program start in July and continue for nine subsequent months (excluding February). Families offered enrollment will receive a payment schedule with their enrollment materials.
If parents are living separately, both custodial and non-custodial parents must complete a Clarity application and submit all required documents as we expect both parents will contribute to the education of their child.
If a parent’s whereabouts are unknown, or a claim is made stating there is no involvement in the child’s upbringing, application forms may not be required, but documentation will be required to verify that the parent has no contact with the applicant.
Financial information is required of all adults, including parents, step-parents, and significant others involved in the applicant’s life. The financial information submitted to Clarity must include all household income and assets.
Non-parental adults living in the applicant's household may be asked to submit financial documentation.
This information should be included on the financial aid application if possible. Should a change in employment occur after a financial aid grant has been communicated, families should update The Center's Financial Aid Committee with as much supporting information as possible, including if the family is requesting additional financial aid.
