Eligibility

The education of young people involves a cooperative partnership between parents and the school. Ursuline High School is and always will be committed to providing tuition assistance in the form of academic scholarships, work-study grants, Adopt-A-Student grants, and need-based scholarships and grants. All students of Ursuline High School are eligible to apply for financial aid regardless of sex, race, creed, nationality or ethnic origin.

In order to be eligible for financial aid, a student must be officially registered at Ursuline High School and his/her parent/guardian must complete the Ursuline High School Financial Aid Form, which is to be returned directly to Ursuline High School. To also be considered for financial assistance based upon NEED, a Private School Aid Service (PSAS) form must also be completed and mailed in the envelope provided. Both of these forms are first available during Ursuline’s Open House on Sunday, February 8, 2015 and in the main office following the open house. Applications are due in March to the main office. Late applications will be placed in a pending file and will not be considered until all applications received on time have been processed. Recipients of financial aid will be notified as to the amount of financial assistance in early June.
