Financial Aid  FAQ

How is financial aid awarded?

Financial aid is awarded to families according to their level of financial need. The St. George’s Financial Aid Committee then reviews all cases individually in determining their final award.

Who fills out the PFS form if the parents are separated or divorced?

Both the custodial and non-custodial parent need to fill out a separate PFS, or to combine financial information on one PFS. In a situation where a parent has remarried, we require that the stepparent’s financial information also be listed on the PFS form.

Is Financial Aid available for international students?

Yes.

Does St. George’s have any academic or athletic scholarships?

No, St. George's does not award merit based aid.

What is the St. George’s code used on the PFS form?

6460

How do I answer No. 13 on the PFS form?

The question is really asking what you can realistically contribute toward your child’s education. Please do not leave it blank or answer zero.

Financial Aid process for returning families:

Our first priority each year is to fund the returning families that are currently receiving financial assistance from St. George’s.
•    After funding our returning students we make financial aid offers to newly admitted families.
•    Once we have funded our returning families and enrolled our new class, we look at the financial situations of returning families who are requesting aid for the first time.
•    The only families that will be considered at this stage are those that demonstrate a significant change in circumstances from the first time they applied.
•    If a family expects to be considered for aid at any time in their child’s SG career, we expect that an application for financial aid would be made at the time of application for admission.
