Financial Aid

Limited financial aid is available for the High School Honors program. Please note that awards are based on both financial need and academic merit. If you would like to be considered for financial aid, please enclose the following with your application:

  • Pages 1 and 2 of your parents' 2017 or 2018 Federal Income Tax Form. Note: tax forms must be mailed or faxed. Social security numbers must be blocked out before faxing or mailing the form to our office.
  • A letter describing your general financial situation and the particular circumstances that prevent you from paying the full tuition and fees.

Financial aid applications must be received by April 17, 2019. Note: applications with financial aid requests are not considered complete until all materials, including financial aid documents, have been submitted. Admission decisions are made without regard to financial aid consideration. Commuter or online students enrolled in only one course and international students are not eligible for financial aid.
