Families must apply for SmartAid if they wish to be considered for tuition assistance or scholarships. 

SmartAid is an aid application service that helps parents streamline and submit their financial aid applications. The program collects relevant data and documents, identifies available grants and scholarships, expedites the review of materials and awards aid directly to accounts.

Next, read through the SmartAid Step-by-Step Guide and then click on the button below to create a SmartAid account and login.

Be sure to submit all required supporting documentation when applying. Applications submitted without documentation will not be processed by SmartAid. Also, please save a copy of your SMARTAid application and supporting documents for your records.
