Financial Aid & Scholarships
DePaul Prep Financial Aid
Criteria for current students:
For returning students, a financial aid application should be completed every year. The online financial aid application opens on October 1, 2023, in FACTS Grant & Aid and closes on February 8, 2024, for current students. Returning families with incoming freshmen should complete their application by the earlier December 31, 2023 deadline.
- The existing tuition account must be current, with no amounts owed.
- Students who receive financial aid must maintain at least a 2.0 GPA.
- Students must observe all school discipline policies and procedures.
- A financial aid application must be filed within the application period. Late applications are not eligible for consideration. Incomplete applications are not eligible for consideration.
Students and parents or guardians who fail to comply with these requirements are not eligible for financial aid. Consideration for financial aid is given only to families with a complete and verified financial aid application filed during the open application season in FACTS Grant & Aid.
Criteria for Incoming Freshmen:
For incoming 9th-grade students applying for the 2024-2025 school year, the process begins with completing both the Admissions and Financial Aid applications.
The online financial aid application opens on October 1, 2023, in FACTS Grant & Aid and closes on December 31, 2023, for incoming 9th-graders and prospective transfer students. Families can and should apply for financial aid before the admissions application opens. Processing financial aid takes time, and starting the application in October is not too early.
Consideration for financial aid is given only to families that apply for financial assistance during the open application season in FACTS Grant & Aid. Financial aid applications filed after December 31, 2023, are not eligible for consideration. Incomplete applications that are not verified are also not eligible for first-round consideration. Students who sit for the Entrance Exam at DePaul College Prep have priority for financial aid awards.
