Is financial aid available for international students?
Holderness School offers financial aid to international students. International families must fill out the PFS statement, remembering to convert to US dollars on the form. In addition, please submit government documents verifying a family’s stated income and assets.
What if parents are divorced or separated?
If parents are divorced or separated, complete information is required from all family members, including both biological parents and step–parents. Both biological parents are required to file separate PFS forms in order to determine need.
What kind of financial aid can families expect after the first year?
Once a student is awarded financial aid from Holderness, the family needs to submit the PFS and required backup documents each subsequent year. Assuming a family continues to demonstrate the same level of need, financial aid will continue to be awarded at the same percentage of the total tuition.
Are the financial aid records confidential?
All financial aid information is strictly confidential and viewed only by the financial aid committee.
Are there other financing options available in the form of loans?
Holderness works with two loan programs that specialize in student financing:
