How to Apply for Financial Aid
Marlborough School uses (SSS) by NAIS School and Student Services for financial aid applications and computing of family finances. The application for 2017-2018 will be available on line beginning October 25, 2016 or later.
Go to School & Student Services by NAIS (form available October 25, 2016) and click on “Complete Your PFS” to access your Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS). Families supporting two households must complete a PFS for each household.
New families select “Create an Account.” Set up your PFS Online Account with your e-mail address and a password. Use the School Code 4875 to create your account. This will enable you to return to your account at a later date to upload required documents. Do not forget you user name and password, as you will need this information again if you apply next year.
Returning families should use your preexisting username and password to start a new Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) for the next academic school year or to review your existing PFS.
Complete your PFS by completing the PFS Checklist to the left of the screen including household information, family income, family assets and debt, family expenses, and other information. Once you are finished, click “Pay and Submit.” The application fee is $48.00 (application fee waivers are automatically applied if you qualify). This is a flat fee, whether you are applying for aid for one child or several children, and whether your children are applying to one school or several schools.
You will be given instructions about how to submit the following backup documents:
2016 Federal Income Tax forms (Form 1040, including all schedules, W-2s, and/or 1099s);
2015 Federal Income Tax forms (Form 1040, including all schedules, W-2s, and/or 1099s);
Completed, signed IRS Form 4506-T “Request for Transcript of Tax Return.” Click here to download the form.
We will make preliminary financial aid awards prior to receiving your 2016 Federal Income Tax forms and awards are contingent upon the verification of the tax returns. Therefore, the award is subject to change and/or may be revoked should the 2016 Federal Income Tax forms differ from the information provided on the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) provided through SSS.
