applying-for-financial-683x1024You are making one of the most important investments of your life, and SFS is here to support you throughout your journey.   The process of applying for financial aid can be challenging, but whether you are a prospective applicant or a continuing student, our goal is to make it as simple as possible.

You will be asked to provide information about you and your family’s income and assets. Once we have reviewed your application materials, and determined your demonstrated need, an award notification will be provided to you.

Both prospective and continuing students have access to SFS staff year-round by email, phone, or in-person. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
