    Notification of Financial Aid
    Once your application is processed, a financial aid recommendation will be forwarded to Notre Dame High School.

  • How do I know if my family qualifies for tuition assistance?

    Notre Dame considers many factors when determining each family’s ability to pay. This includes your income, assets, and expenses, including educational costs for other children. Your financial need is the gap between how much Notre Dame determines your family can afford and the cost of tuition. It is impossible for the school to determine how much financial aid a family qualifies for without completing the Blackbaud Tuition Assistance Assessment application and submitting all required documentation. Incoming freshmen will be notified if their family qualified for aid on March 5th when the decision letters are mailed. 
  • Is my Tuition Assistance Award guaranteed each year?

    Provided family circumstances remain the same and Notre Dame can continue to support the family to the same extent, students will retain their awards throughout their enrollment. However, in order to be considered for tuition assistance, the family must reapply each year. 
  • Who has access to my tuition assistance application?

    Notre Dame takes seriously its responsibility to keep all personal and financial information confidential. Information on your tuition assistance application will only be shared and viewed by the adults listed on the application, your Blackbaud auditor, and Notre Dame's Tuition Assistance Committee. Information disclosed in your application has no effect on your student's admission to Notre Dame.
  • What if I don't have all my documents by January 18?

    Your application will not be reviewed by the Tuition Assistance Committee until all documents have been received.
