Apply for Tuition Assistance

Applying for tuition assistance is optional.

If you choose to apply for tuition assistance, see the following steps and deadlines:

MICDS requires each family applying for tuition assistance to place a confidential online application through School and Students Services (SSS) by completing the Parent Financial Statement and submitting supporting tax documentation. It is extremely important to submit the tuition assistance application on time, as there are budgetary limits to the available funds. Do not wait until a child is accepted to apply for aid. Please visit our Tuition and Affordability webpage or read our Affording MICDS Brochure for more information on how to apply.

Tuition assistance application deadlines:

  • December 2, 2019 – This was the filing deadline for all current students, with 2018 taxes and W-2s.
  • February 3, 2020 – This was the deadline for new applications for all other grade levels.

Note: If the application deadlines have passed, you may still apply for assistance but funds may no longer be available.

Decisions and notification:

Applying for tuition assistance does not affect the admission decision. The admission decision is a separate process from the tuition assistance determination and is led by a separate committee. The Committee on Tuition Assistance deliberations are confidential and address only factors affecting the assessment of need. Prospective families can expect a tuition assistance decision at the same time as their admission decision when applications are completed by or before the deadline.
