How to Apply for Financial Aid

Financial Aid Timeline

Below you will find a timeline for applying for financial aid, including important deadlines during the process.

STEP 1
Beginning October 2nd, 2020, families can start the process by filling out the Parent Financial Statement (PFS) through School and Student Services (SSS) online. You’ll want to carve out 2-3 hours to complete the application, and have access to your most recent tax returns or financial documents before starting the process. 

List Berkshire as a recipient of your PFS using the SCHOOL CODE 1612 

365体育滚球Estimate your 2021 earnings and expenses based on your tax returns from the previous two years.

365体育滚球We strongly encourage you to document in your own words any special circumstances under “Other Information” at the very bottom of the PFS. 

365体育滚球Please note: in cases of divorce or separation, Berkshire requires that both natural parents and stepparents fill out the PFS. 

There is a $51 non-refundable fee for submitting the PFS. If your family qualifies for a fee waiver, the payment will be automatically waived. 

STEP 2
Upload your tax documents, or any other supporting documents. Be sure to remove any passwords or security from your documents.
