Financial Aid - Mid-Pacific Institute

Financial Aid: Policies and Procedures
2017-2018 Academic Year

Mid-Pacific awards a limited amount of financial aid to assist families with tuition. Mid-Pacific uses the independent services of "School and Student Services By NAIS" (SSS) to help assess and process applications for financial aid. SSS provides Mid-Pacific with a preliminary estimate that each family can contribute toward tuition; and Mid-Pacific awards a percentage of the SSS-calculated family need. Numerous factors are considered in determining need, including but not limited to family income, size, assets, family debt, number of children attending tuition-charging schools, lifestyle choices, etc.

How to Apply

Step 1: Download and Complete Required Documents

Step 2: Complete the Parents' Financial Statment (PFS)

In order to help determine eligibility, Mid-Pacific uses School and Student Services (SSS) by NAIS. New applicant families must submit the completed Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) and the $48 non-refundable fee to Randolph, MA for processing by February 15, 2017.

Access the SSS website here http://sssbynais.org/parents, and read the information presented. When you are ready to complete the form, click on the green Complete Your PFS link.

Only one PFS is required for multiple children and for those applying to other independent schools; however, document requirements differ at all schools. Remember your password; you will need it to "save" your work-in-progress and to return to the PFS at a later time.

About 24 hours after you have paid for and submitted your PFS online, you will have access to the Manage Documents section of the PFS Online. You can now upload documents (see next section) and view your Family Report that summarizes the information that will be provided to Mid-Pacific.

If you wish to complete the PFS using the paper form, please call Mid-Pacific Institute's Admissions Office at (808) 973-5003 or email financialaid@midpac.edu.

Notes:

Divorced Or Separated Parents
Mid-Pacific considers that both parents have an obligation to contribute to the extent they can to their children's educational expenses. Assets and income of both natural parents are taken into account. Mid-Pacific cannot be bound by the assertion that one parent has disclaimed legally or otherwise any responsibility for educational expenses. If either parent has remarried, income of the step-parent will be considered, keeping in mind the obligation of that step-parent to his or her natural children. If either parent lives in a household with another adult, Mid-Pacific may consider the assets and income of that person, depending on circumstances. In view of this, both natural parents and their current spouses need to fill out a separate PFS form.

Non-discrimination Policy
Mid-Pacific Institute, in the administration of its programs, does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion or gender, in administering its educational or admissions policies, financial aid, athletic or other programs.

The process of admissions and financial aid are unrelated, and the need for financial aid will not affect admission to Mid-Pacific Institute.

Financial assistance will be considered based on demonstrated financial need, availability of funds, academic performance, personal behavior, and information provided on the PFS. With current families, Mid-Pacific also considers tuition payment history. Continuation of financial aid is contingent upon a satisfactory record of grades, citizenship, and community-service and school-service work performance.
