    As part of your FACTS application, you will be required to mail or fax the following documents to FACTS: 2019 IRS Federal Form 1040, 1040A, or 1040-EZ U.S. Individual Income Tax Return. If applicant and co- applicant file separately, FACTS requires both tax returns for the same tax year including all schedules. Copies of all 2019 W-2 Wage and Tax Statement for both you and your spouse. In the case of divorced families, both parties must complete and submit the Financial Aid Grant and Assessment and submit the necessary forms to FACTS.

    FACTS will collect all supporting documents and will create the report and send it to St. Cecilia. No tuition assistance awards will be given if these steps are not taken. Please note, families receiving tuition assistance must re-apply each year through FACTS. Families applying for tuition assistance through FACTS do not need to send anything to St. Cecilia. Questions about FACTS? Contact Denise Hayes,

    Education tuition loans can be found through Your Tuition Solutions.

    The tuition assistance application is due to FACTS on February 20, 2020.

  • Parish Subsidies

    For Catholic families, please note that the parishes listed below offer subsidies to their parishioners who regularly attend mass and tithe. Click on the name of your parish, download the subsidy form and submit it to your parish's business office. Each parish that provides a subsidy independently determines their amount and submits a check to St. Cecilia directly. Then, the St. Cecilia business office deducts that amount from your tuition balance. These checks are typically received during the fall semester.
