Application Process

All families wishing to be considered for financial assistance must complete an application through FAST by February 8, 2019. This includes returning students currently receiving financial aid, new applicants who would like to be considered for financial aid, and returning students not currently receiving financial aid who would now like to be considered for assistance.

PROCEDURES FOR PARENTS:

Parents are asked to access the FAST Program website specifically for Episcopal High School applicants. Once there, click the Start Application button on the first page. The application is available in English and Spanish.

All financial information should be entered directly through the secure server by February 8, 2019. Space is also provided to enter additional information that may be pertinent to the application, and we encourage families to use that to explain any unusual circumstances. Financial information is required from all parents, including non-custodial parents and step-parents.

A copy of all parents' 2018 tax returns and W-2 forms must be submitted to FAST by March 3, 2019, including non-custodial parents and step-parents.

There will be a fee of $43 required to process the application. Once completed, the application will be available immediately for the Financial Aid Committee’s review. You may be contacted by the School if additional information is needed.

For questions about the FAST system, please contact help@ismfast.com or call 1-877-326-FAST. The FAST call center is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

PROCEDURES FOR EPISCOPAL HIGH SCHOOL:

Once the application is submitted the Financial Aid Committee can access your application.

The Financial Aid Committee then meets to review each family’s completed online application.

The Financial Aid Committee determines the allocation of financial aid resources for the next year and financial aid offers are sent to families.

NOTE: Even if your 2017 tax return cannot be completed by February 8, 2019, you must submit your financial aid application by that date to ensure preliminary consideration among the first group of awards. Financial aid awards will not be released until the entire application process, including receipt of the tax forms, has been completed. Computations based on the application will be adjusted to reflect figures shown on the tax forms.

LATE APPLICATIONS Funds sometimes remain or become available after the initial awards have been offered. Families whose applications for admission have been initiated after the financial aid application deadline are encouraged to proceed. However, the School's resources cannot be guaranteed, and any amounts awarded late may be reduced if funding is available at all.
