Assistance applications are reviewed and allocations begin in February. The enrollment deposit for families applying for tuition assistance is $250. Award recipients are required to enroll in the Tuition Refund Plan (tuition insurance) and participate in SMART, a 10-month payment tuition plan.

The Tuition Refund Plan is optional except for families participating in the SMART Program or applying for tuition assistance. The premium cost will be billed in September. For the 2018-2019 school year, the Tuition Refund Plan cost is 1.6% of the tuition.
