If you have questions or concerns about the application process, you may speak with a FACTS Customer Care Representative at (866) 441-4637.
The application process for financial aid is separate from the admissions process. New families may begin the financial aid process before the official notification of their student’s acceptance and final registration. However, they must complete the entire admission application and be accepted to Mater Dei before they will hear back from the financial review committee on their potential financial aid grant. It is advised that families work on admissions and financial aid applications concurrently.

Financial Aid Process
Please note: To receive the Catholic tuition rate, you must submit the Parish Verification Form or a copy of your child’s baptismal certificate to the admissions office by February 16, 2018. The Financial Review Committee evaluates financial aid applications based on the information provided at the time of the initial filing. Information (baptismal or parish form status) provided AFTER families have been notified of their financial aid grant will reduce the total amount of the award by $1,400 (the difference of the Catholic and Non Catholic Tuition Rate).
Financial Aid Applications for the 2018-2019 School Year
Applicants can apply online by clicking the FACTS link at https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3CZRQ.
A limited number of financial aid paper applications are also available for pick up in the Advancement and Business Offices on campus during school business hours (7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.). Due to the limited number of paper applications, we strongly encourage you to apply on-line.
As stated above, need based financial aid is available on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline for completed packets is February 16, 2018.
PLEASE NOTE: We continue to accept and review financial aid applications beyond this date. However, please understand that grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to those who qualify.
In addition, families that submit their financial aid application with the proper supporting documents after the deadline run the risk of not receiving financial aid for the next school year. Given the demand for need-based financial aid, we make every attempt to provide assistance to qualified families, but strongly encourage applicants to comply with deadlines and required paperwork.
FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment will ONLY review completed applications with ALL supporting documents required.
