How to Apply for Tuition Assistance
To be considered for tuition assistance for the 2019-20 school year, applicants and returning students must complete the Seton Catholic Tuition Assistance application and comply with all document and deadline requirements. (Please note that students in our International program are not eligible for tuition assistance or scholarships).
The Tuition Assistance Application and supporting document submission deadline for all applicants is January 4, 2019.
Please follow the steps below to apply for Seton Catholic and Fulcrum Foundation Tuition Assistance for the 2019-20 school year:
- Visit Financial Aid Application FACTS
to complete the Seton Catholic Tuition Assistance Application.
Parents should sign in as a “Returning Family” or as a new family under “Create a New Account”. Note: Families whose current school uses FACTS, should login as a “Returning Family” and use the same login username and password you use now.
Parents of students who live in separate households are expected to apply separately.
Under the “Applicant” section, answer “Yes” to the question “Are you applying for Fulcrum Foundation Tuition Assistance?” Seton Catholic and Fulcrum use the same application with questions from both institutions required throughout the application.
Families with students in other tuition charging schools that participate in Fulcrum’s Aid program and/or the FACTS Grant and Aid program should list all of their students on one application. Each FACTS school and Fulcrum will receive the application information.
Parents should have the following documents available when working on the Seton application: (a) Social Security number. (b) 2017 Tax Return (1040). (c) Most recent pay stub for both working parents (d) most current Profit / Loss statement if self employed.

Required Supporting Financial Documents
The Tuition Assistance application is considered complete and ready for review when the following documents are attached and visible to the FACTS application:
2017 IRS Federal Form 1040,1040A,1040EZ Individual Income Tax Return including all required Schedules and Attachments.
If applicant and co-applicant file separately, we require both tax returns for the same year.
All 2017 W-2 or 1099 statements for both applicant and co-applicant.
Business owners are required to provide their most current Profit and Loss Statement for the business.
Parents who receive funds from Social Security, SSI, or Unemployment Compensation are required to submit a copy of the Federal/State Award Letter or payment advice.
The preferred method of attaching documents is to scan and upload them from your computer. FACTS supplies instructions on how to do this. Parents may also FAX or mail documents directly to FACTS. However, please be aware that documents sent to FACTS can take up to two weeks to be attached to the financial aid application. We are not able to see the documents or review the application until the record is updated. Parents who choose to have FACTS scan and attach the required documents should have everything to FACTS by December 15, 2018.
FACTS customer support is available to assist with application questions 24 hrs/day, 7 days/week at (866-441-4637). Please have your application ID and Social Security numbers available.
