The Ursuline School is pleased to offer need based financial aid grants to all eligible students in our middle and high school.
TUS Grants and Work Study Grants are need-based financial awards for qualified middle and high school students, as demonstrated through the evaluation of a financial aid application by The Ursuline School Financial Aid Committee. All applications are processed by School & Student Services for Financial Aid at the Educational Testing Service in Princeton, New Jersey. The 2018-19 financial aid application will open October 2, 2017, you can complete an on-line application at www.sssbynais.org/parents. Our school code is 7878. The deadline for applications and supporting documentation for prospective students in 6th and 9th grades, prospective transfer students, renewal applicants and all current Ursuline students seeking aid for the first time is December 31, 2017.
The Educational Testing Service evaluates the information and then sends The Ursuline School a report. We then use all the information available to decide on an appropriate financial aid award. Need-based financial aid is granted at the the School's discretion, on a first come, first serve basis. This award is not automatically renewable from year to year. Each year you must re-submit an on-line application to www.sssbynais.org/parents to apply for a renewal of your award. The Ursuline School is not able to grant awards to all families with demonstrated need.
The Ursuline School Financial Aid Committee will be able to finalize aid awards only after your file is complete. Therefore, documentation should be provided as early as possible.
