Qualification for financial aid depends on a number of factors. Income, assets, obligations, number of dependents, ages of parents, the number of children attending full-time tuition charging institutions are just some of the factors that impact the level of financial aid a family may qualify for. We follow the financial aid guidelines established by SSS for Financial Aid in determining need. After parents submit their completed PFS, SSS reviews the information provided and uses a formula to calculate how much a family can afford to spend on a child’s education. This information is shared with both the family and the schools to which they are applying.
The Financial Aid Committee at Emma Willard reviews this recommendation along with the information included in the PFS and supporting documents provided, and makes the final decision on the amount of financial aid to award.
