Need-Based Financial Assistance
All families applying for need-based financial assistance must complete the FACTS application by NOVEMBER 2015.
FACTS is an organization that analyzes a family’s finances to assist schools in making tuition assistance decisions.
Scholarship funds created by donor contributions are a source of financial assistance for Ursuline students. Award criteria may be determined by the fund creator and varies from fund to fund.
Ursuline Academy has established a Grant Program to provide tuition assistance to qualifying families. Grants are based solely on financial need.
Ursuline Academy sponsors a Work-Study Program. The Work-Study Program provides assignments in a lab, art studio, library, school office, or school department. Students earn minimum wage, which is accumulated and deducted from their tuition balance each month. Call the school office to request information about the Work-Study Program. In order to participate in this program, a family must qualify for tuition assistance through the Financial Aid application and have an open tuition balance.
Minority Student Aid
The Fund for Independent Schools of Cincinnati (FISC) provides additional tuition assistance for African-American students.
