2023/2024 FINANCIAL AID: Deadline: February 15, 2023
As more families are applying for financial aid and have reasonable expectations that aid will be awarded in a timely manner once their application and supporting documentation have been submitted, the Catholic School Office of the Syracuse Diocese has chosen to utilize FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment for 2023 / 2024.
For our 2023 / 2024 financial aid assessment process, we are partnering with FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment to conduct the financial need analysis and verification for the schools of our Diocese. Families should apply online because the applications are able to be processed immediately by FACTS. To apply on–line visit online.factsmgt.com/aid. If you need assistance with applying on–line, please contact your SCHOOL. FACTS Customer Care Representatives are available to assist you at 866.441.4639.
Our first and largest round of financial aid is TAP A, which is funded by HOPE APPEAL. In order to be eligible for TAP A awards, families will need to COMPLETE the financial aid application and submit supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment by FEBRUARY 15, 2023.
Once a parent applies, they can log into their FACTS account to check the status of their application, and FACTS will provide bi–weekly follow–up communication to parents if their application is incomplete. An incomplete application cannot be processed.
Financial aid is available to grades K–12 ONLY– we are unable to provide financial aid for PRE–K. In order to receive financial assistance –families must submit a completed FACTS application. Financial aid applications are required so that we can better allocate our tuition assistance to those who need it most.
Supporting documentation can be scanned and uploaded or faxed (866.315.9264) to FACTS. Supporting documentation should include:
- Copies of parent‘s 2022 tax return if available, otherwise use 2021 – including all supporting tax schedules
- W–2‘s for the parent (and spouse if applicable) – W2 should match the tax return being submitted
- Copies of Social Security Income, Child Support, Food Stamps, Worker‘s Compensation and TANF (if applicable)
We look forward to working with FACTS once again as we partner to provide an outstanding educational experience for the children of the families of our Diocese.
