  • Special Note to Returning Families

    Prep认识到家庭的经济状况每年都在变化,为了跟踪这些变化的需求,每个接受援助的家庭每年都需要提交财务文件(这包括所有兄弟的削减)。. 如果您不重新提交财务文件并通过TADS申请,您将无法获得2024-25学年的任何经济援助. Families who are not receiving aid but are in financial need should apply as well. 新的财政援助拨款可能会以每年为基础颁发给在读学生.
  • Divorced or Separated Parents

    In dealing with divorced or separated parents, 经济援助办公室的目标是从双方收集尽可能多的信息, as well as from the spouses of either or both. Each situation is unique and will be handled on an individual basis.

In this instance, 父母双方必须共同或单独完成所需的经济援助申请. 助学金将在考虑父母双方的经济实力后发放. In the case of separated and/or divorced parents, 学校不会向任何一方家长提供有关另一方家长财务披露的信息. The assets of both parents will be considered before making any award; the assertion that one parent has disclaimed responsibility for educational expenses does not apply.
    In the case in which one parent has no contact with his child, the custodial parent should submit third-party verification (from clergy, school administration, etc.) regarding the other parent’s absence.
  • Appeals Process
