如何确定申请援助的资格?

Kent’s 金融援助 Committee starts with a standardized calculation derived by the School and Student Service for 金融援助 (SSS). This calculation is based on information provided by the family on the Parent Financial Statement (PFS) and in the case of international students, the 澳门永利贵宾会 International Student 金融援助 Application Profile. 这个制度考虑的是应纳税总收入, 资产, 负债, family size and number of students enrolled in tuition-charging schools. After an allowance for basic necessities and taxes, the remaining funds are considered discretionary income, 用于教育.

从那里, Kent’s 金融援助 Committee looks at additional information which comes from the required supplemental documentation. As a result, often Kent’s calculated parent contribution differs from that of the SSS. 例如, Kent does not allow depreciation and losses on second homes, 投资房地产和业余生意. Kent will also consider the potential for income to be earned by an able, non-working parent who does not have small children at home.

 

What if the parents of the applicant are divorced or separated?

在离婚案件中, 分离, 还有那些从未结婚的父母, both natural parents are required to submit a complete and separate application regardless of any divorce or custodial agreement. Each parent’s PFS should reflect only their household income, 资产和费用, including those of current resident spouse/partner, 如果适用的话. If either parent declines to submit the required information, no further consideration for aid will be given. 如果父母一方再婚, the application should include the step-parent’s financial information. Kent will consider the finances of a step-parent, bearing in mind the step-parent’s obligation to his or her natural children.

 

如果我是个单亲妈妈怎么办?

We base our financial aid decisions on both parents’ demonstrated ability to contribute toward educational expenses and not on their willingness to participate in the process. 然而, 澳门永利最新备用网址很少能理解这一点, it may be impossible to procure an application from a non-custodial parent who has no contact with the family and whose whereabouts are unknown. If it is impossible for a non-custodial parent to submit an application and the custodial parent is asking to be considered a single parent for purposes of awarding aid, please contact the 金融援助 Office for details on how to proceed.

 

Does the financial aid calculation take into account expenses for children enrolled at other schools?

是的, but if a family has children in other tuition-charging schools, they are expected to apply to those institutions for aid as well. Kent reserves the right to verify enrollment/cost/aid for the sibling(s) enrolled at other institutions.

 

Can my child receive assistance to participate in Kent’s Equestrian Program?

Participation in the equestrian program at Kent carries with it a significant extra expense - 2021-2022 cost is $5,900年每三个月. 在确定获得援助的资格时, we do not include this extra cost in our financial aid expense budget and therefore do not assign financial aid funds to cover the Equestrian Program Fee.

 

 

If we receive financial aid for the first year, what happens in subsequent years and what if our finances change?

If there is continuing need, families are required to re-apply for aid each year. Awards may be adjusted if the family’s financial circumstances change.

 

 

If we do not apply/qualify for aid this year, can we apply again next year?

Families whose children begin their career at Kent without financial aid will not be given consideration in future years, 除了不可预见的情况下. In the event of such an unforeseen change in financial circumstance, 你是否希望在未来一年申请, you must notify the 金融援助 Office by December 1.  There is no guarantee that financial aid will be awarded even if the review confirms that need-based aid is warranted. The original 招生 decision and forecast of financial aid assumes no financial aid in future years.

 

What if we have special circumstances that are not addressed in the standard application?

Special or unusual circumstances can be documented in a letter sent directly to the Kent 金融援助 Office for consideration.

 

澳门永利贵宾会是否向非美国人提供经济援助.S. 公民?

澳门永利最新备用网址的大部分财政援助是给美国政府的.S 公民 but we will consider small financial aid grants for highly qualified international candidates as well.

 

What if I cannot pay the PFS application fee and need a fee waiver?

The School and Student Service (SSS) will automatically determine your eligibility for a fee waiver based on the information entered on your PFS application. 

Is it still possible to apply if we have missed the published filing deadlines?

It is still possible to apply after the filing deadlines. 然而, there is no guarantee that aid will still be available for late applicants, so we encourage you to submit all application materials as soon as possible.
