Financial Aid Process
Dear Parents & Guardians,
Welcome to St. Joseph Regional Jr. High School! Please read through the Application Form. Once you have applied and we have reviewed your file, you will be moved on to the next step in the registration process.
If you will be applying for financial aid, read below for detailed, step-by-step instructions.
Please do not hesitate to call or email me if you have any questions. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 1: Set up a FACTS account
BEFORE you apply for Financial Aid, you MUST have a Family Portal and FACTS management
Account. This is an independent, third party company that conducts financial analysis to determine your
family's financial need. We receive a confidential report outlining your financial situation and
decide awards based on the information obtained in your application and supporting tax
For details on how to set up your accounts, click here:
Step 2: Fill out and submit your online application
Log into your family Portal Account and click the ‘FINANCIAL’ tab on the left side of the screen.
Under ‘FINANCIAL LINKS’ click ‘APPLY FOR GRANT AND AID’

Step 3: Submit supporting documents
Submit your Federal Form 1040 Income Tax Return, W-2 forms, and supporting documentation for non-taxable income to FACTS. You can upload documents by logging into your online account or fax them to 866-315-9264. Draft or Preview Copy tax documents will not be accepted.
Step 4: Set up your tuition payment
Log in to your Family Portal account.
Choose: SIGN IN. If you didn’t use FACTS this year but set up an account for financial aid, please use the same login information. THIS WILL BE DIFFERENT FROM YOUR FAMILY PORTAL LOGIN INFORMATION.
Choose: NEW ACCOUNT and create a username & password. Be sure to save this information for future use.
Create a FACTS account if you have not done so already. If you've applied for financial aid, this step is already done!
Once your account is set up you will need to choose SET UP A PAYMENT PLAN on the right in order to enter bank account information.
Continue to add account information. Upon completion, the school will enter the payment information for your account (including amount owed, withdrawal date, and number of monthly payments). You will receive an email when the account is finalized.

*Please allow at least two weeks for processing your application.
**An application is considered complete only when FACTS Grant & Aid has received
all supporting documentation.
Who decides how much financial aid I will receive?
The educational institution granting aid is solely responsible for determining the final award. The analysis completed by FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment serves as a recommendation only.
Why do I have to provide this personal and confidential information?
FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment must verify your expenses and household income to assist your institution in making an informed decision about the amount of financial aid needed for each family.
How can I check the status of my application?
Once you have completed the online application, you will be able to log on to the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment website to check the status of your application.
Is there any way to receive additional aid?
We want a St. Joe's education to be as affordable and accessible as possible. We frequently update our scholarships page and encourage all incoming students to apply for whatever they may qualify for. That page can be found here.
