Dear Class of 2023 Applicant:
Welcome to Preston! We are very proud to continue our Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) for incoming freshmen who demonstrate need. The application process through FACTS Grant & Aid opens Thursday, November 1, 2018. All financial aid applications must be submitted by Monday, December 31, 2018. Final awards are contingent upon the funds available and the number of families requesting aid. We will notify you in our January acceptance letter.
To apply for financial aid, please do the following:
- Go to and create an account. The process is self-guided. You may navigate in and out of the program allowing you to partially complete an application and go back to it at another time. Please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions before calling Customer Service at (866) 441-4637. Please do not call the school.
- There is a $35 nonrefundable application fee, payable by debit/credit card.
- After completing the online application, you will be required to upload your 2017 Federal and State income tax returns, along with required schedules, including Form(s) W-2.
There is no way to determine in advance if you will receive financial aid – there are simply too many individual factors and extenuating circumstances. However, we encourage you to apply, as this online process has already served our school community well. Among its various features are a streamlined application process, the security of your submitted personal and financial data, and the highest degree of confidentiality.
We know you have many choices and thank you for considering Preston. Best wishes on your TACHS exam and this very important decision. We hope to see you in September,
We are very proud to continue our financial aid program to families of our students who demonstrate need. An application must be made every year for which you seek financial aid; the application can only be made directly from your FACTS tuition account by clicking on the “Apply for Grant & Aid” on your landing page. An application takes an average of two (2) hours total to complete properly.
For 2019-20, the application deadline for rising upperclasswomen is April 30, 2019 and there is a $40 fee, payable directly to FACTS. An application is not complete and will not be considered without the required 2018 tax documents (Federal and State returns and W-2 wage statements). If your tuition is in arrears as of April 30, your application will automatically be rejected.
For incoming freshmen (class of 2023), the deadline is December 31, 2018.
There is no way to determine in advance if you will receive financial aid, as there are simply too many individual factors and extenuating circumstances taken into consideration. Final awards are always contingent upon the funds available and the number of families requesting aid. Any Financial Aid granted will be posted to your FACTS tuition account at the end of May 2019.
Financial Aid cannot be combined with any other Preston-awarded tuition discounts, except the Sibling Discount.
