Williston’s financial aid grants help make opportunity accessible to hundreds of exceptional students from all income levels. Each year, the school provides $6.2 million in financial aid, ranging from significant grants to modest awards, to help qualified applicants bridge the gap between the cost of tuition and family resources. Our goal is to open the door of opportunity, and to create a vibrant and diverse student body.

FAQs About Financial Aid
How is financial aid awarded?
Grants are awarded on a year-by-year basis at the discretion of the Financial Aid Committee. These grants are based on family need, strength of a student’s application, and financial aid resources. While we are fortunate to be able to offer $6.2 million in financial aid to our student body, we are unable to accept all capable students who qualify for financial aid, and candidates may be placed on the school’s waiting list.
How do I apply for financial aid?
Williston partners with School and Student Services (SSS) to process financial aid applications. Please visit the parent portal of SSS to begin your Parent’s Financial Statement (PFS) and upload your supporting tax documents. Your financial aid application is complete after you have filled out the PFS and uploaded your supporting documents. Please note that all documents must be uploaded directly to your PFS online. Williston’s school code for SSS is 8230.

Everything you need to know about submission information and appropriate tax documentation can be found in the Financial Aid Application Guidelines.

For new families, financial aid applications should be completed by February 1, 2020. For returning families, financial aid applications should be completed by December 20, 2019. More specific deadline information can be found in our Financial Aid Timetable.
I didn't receive financial aid my first year; can I in years following?
In general, returning students who do not apply for or receive financial aid their first year are unlikely to receive aid in the following years.
