Financial Assistance

We recognize that affording Cheverus is a financial challenge for many families. Last year Cheverus awarded more than $2 million in financial aid packages to about 60% of the student body. Although families are expected to make a significant contribution to their child’s education that is within their means, as determined by filling out the FACTS financial aid application, we do not want finances to be the only reason your student does not attend Cheverus. If you will be applying for financial assistance, we encourage you to open a dialogue early in the admissions process with the Admissions team.

Applying for financial aid through the online FACTS application early enables you to be considered with first-round applicants for tuition assistance.  Our application portal will open on November 1, 2018. Important deadlines for financial aid:

  • February 8, 2019: 1st round deadline for financial aid FACTS application to be considered in first round of tuition assistance awards.
  • March 2, 2019: Admissions decision notifications and financial assistance packets communicated to families.
  • March 9, 2019: 2nd round deadline for financial aid FACTS application to be considered in the second round of tuition assistance awards.


If you have questions or concerns about the financial aid process, please reach out to the Admissions team to discuss options and your individual situation. To reach the Admissions team email and 207-774-6238 x114.
