We recognize that a Miller School of Albemarle education is a significant investment. Each year, we award nearly $2 million in financial aid to nearly 40% of our students, with an average financial-aid award of over $25,000. We are committed to the vision of our founder, Samuel Miller, to make a Miller School of Albemarle education accessible and affordable for qualified applicants.
To be considered for aid, a student must apply for admission and be accepted. Financial need is determined through careful review, using School and Student Services for Financial Aid (SSS). At Miller School of Albemarle, we review the SSS analysis, along with tax records and other information provided by the family, to determine estimated need. Financial aid requests must be renewed from year to year with a new application and updated financial data.
Step One: Indicate that you intend to apply for financial aid - To be given full consideration for financial aid, it is important that you indicate your intention to apply for financial aid on the application for admission, or by contacting the Admission Office
Step Two: Complete the Parent Financial Statement - In order to determine a family’s eligibility to receive financial aid in a fair and equitable manner, MSA requires that all new and returning applicants complete the Parent Financial Statement (PFS) through School and Student Services (SSS) at sss.nais.org. Please include Miller School of Albemarle’s school code (1153) . Please complete the PFS by February 15, 2018.
Step Three: Submit ALL financial information to SSS - All new applicants for financial aid must submit to SSS their current year’s and their previous year’s federal income tax returns, including W2s and 1040s with all schedules and attachments. Returning applicants for financial aid need only submit their current year’s taxes. Please upload all supporting documents to SSS by February 15, 2018.
Questions about the process may be directed to the SSS Help Desk
