We recognize the financial aid process can sometimes be overwhelming and confusing, but our team is here to guide you through this important step in your child’s life.

Important Announcements

Early Decision I award notifications are expected to be released the first week of January. Prospective students are advised to check BentleyConnect to ensure all application requirements have been completed.

FAFSA and CSS Profile applications for the 2020-2021 academic year will be available beginning October 1, 2019.

Please note that we do not subscribe to the IDOC upload service, so we are unable to view documents that have been uploaded to the College Scholarship Service site via IDOC. In addition, for security purposes, we cannot accept documents via email that contain sensitive information such as social security numbers or tax information. In addition, the Department of Education no longer requires IRS Tax Return Transcripts for the verification process. In lieu of the IRS transcripts, we can accept a signed copy of a filed tax return for the 2019-2020 academic year applications.

We invite you to like us on Facebook where you can find the latest information on private scholarship opportunities.
