How to Apply for Financial Aid
Middlesex works with School and Student Services for Financial Aid (SSS) in assessing a family’s need. Returning families must reapply for financial aid each year; however, barring any significant changes in their financial profile, families can expect approximately the same award from year-to-year. If a family does not apply for aid or qualify for aid upon admission, it is unlikely that the family will receive an aid award in subsequent years, unless there is a significant change in that family’s financial circumstances. In the case of divorce, Middlesex requires that both parents file financial aid forms. Both domestic and international families applying for aid should follow these steps:
1) Indicate interest in Financial Aid on the online inquiry form.
2) Fill out the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) form available at https://www.solutionsbysss.com/parents/. The Middlesex code is 5068.
3) Submit tax documentation to SSS at the same website. Domestic families must submit a copy of the prior two years’ W-2’s and 1040 Federal Tax Forms, with all schedules, to SSS. If you are applying for the 2021-22 school year, please submit 2018 and 2019 tax documentation. Current year tax forms are not required; however, if 2020 was a very different year financially for your family, you may include 2020 forms in the “Additional Documents” section of SSS.
International families who do not file US taxes should submit supporting documentation from their home country, such as taxes, pay stubs, or official statements of income. Electronic forms can be submitted online; paper forms must be sent to the address below:
