Financial Assistance

The Ursuline Academy of Dallas Financial Assistance Program is designed to offer assistance to students who are in need of financial support. In 2016-2017, the Academy granted approximately $1,233,000 in financial assistance and merit awards to 217 students, representing approximately 26% of the student body.

Admission to Ursuline and the awarding of Financial Assistance are two separate decisions.  If a student is accepted, Ursuline then determines the student's need, the family's ability to pay, and the availability of financial assistance funds.  When a student demonstrates need, it is the intent of this program to share the cost of education with the student and her family.
 
Eligibility
To be eligible for assistance, a family/student must demonstrate financial need, meet the entrance requirements of the Academy, and be current with all financial obligations due. 
 
Renewals
Every effort will be made to award some tuition support to eligible candidates. Students may be eligible for a grant each of their four years at Ursuline; however, the students must apply each year. Awards are not automatically renewed.
 
How to Apply
Ursuline uses the Grant & Aid Assessment through FACTS, a third party organization which analyzes the financial situation of applicants based on a number of factors. Families applying for financial assistance must submit their FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment online. Please note the following important deadline.
  • January 13, 2017: Deadline for submitting the completed FACTS Grant & Aid application form, fee, and a complete, executed copy of your 2015 Federal Income Tax Return directly to FACTS. The Tax Return must include all tax schedules and copies of your W-2 forms. Your application will not be considered until all information is received.   
Notification
Decisions regarding financial assistance will be mailed on March 10, 2017 to families that have submitted ALL required documentation.  If the application remains pending due to an outstanding tax return, the family will be notified in a timely manner by FACTS. If you do not receive a notification letter, contact the Finance Office to check on the status of your application.
