Financial Aid Process
Financial Aid Process
Students admitted to Marquette University High School may apply for the Financial Aid Program. Approximately 42 percent of the student body receives financial aid.
The financial aid program at MUHS is vital to attracting and retaining students. Parents seeking financial assistance for their son must complete a confidential form that highlights annual income, assets and liabilities. We contract with Financial Aid Independent Review, Inc. to process the financial aid applications and provide an objective evaluation of each family's financial need. FAIR is a nationally recognized leader in financial need evaluation services for Catholic and private schools.
The Financial Aid Committee reviews the recommendations and information provided by FAIR to determine the amount each qualified student will receive. MUHS cannot guarantee aid to all applicants. Awards are based on overall financial need (as indicated using federal tax forms) and timeliness of application.
There will be a $30 non-refundable processing fee required to apply for financial aid through an online application.
FAIR will require the previous year's federal tax return, and if applicable, will require business tax returns. The information that you provide will allow FAIR to accurately determine your family's need which remains the basis of our awards.
Incoming Students (Class of 2024):
The easy to understand financial aid application is available online at www.fairapp.com and must be completed prior to the November entrance exam, if the family is requesting tuition assistance.
Financial aid applications can be completed Oct. 1 - Nov. 1, 2019. Applications received by Nov. 1 will be reviewed and admitted students will be notified of any award in early January 2020.
NOTE: If you submit an Admissions Application after Nov. 1 and are interested in applying for financial aid, contact Admissions at email@example.com BEFORE completing the Financial Aid application.
The Financial Aid application deadline for current families is March 20, 2020.
NOTE: If your applicaton is not submitted to FAIR by March 20, MUHS will assume that you will not be applying for financial aid for the 2020-2021 school year. A late application will jeopardize the likelihood that your award will renew at a similar level of what you currently receive in financial aid. After March 20, MUHS will distribute any funds that are not renewed to the families that are in need of more financial assistance.
With each application you must submit a copy of your 2019 W-2's, 2019 Federal Income Tax Return (Form 1040), any accompanying schedules and/or SSI and AFDC award letters before consideration can be given to your request for aid. FAIR has a complete listing of all of the required documents on their website.
Financial aid award letters will be mailed home the last week of April.
