Tuition and Financial Aid
Drew is committed to maintaining socioeconomic diversity by helping families afford Drew's college-preparatory education. Forty percent of Drew students receive some level of need-based financial support. Each family's financial situation is unique, and Drew takes care to consider every application carefully. The range of financial aid awarded to Drew families spans from less than 10% of tuition to nearly 100% which means your family could pay anywhere between $500 to $51,975 a year in tuition based on your need. The process of awarding financial aid is very deliberate and based on the assumption that each family who enrolls is using their own resources to the maximum possible extent.
Financial aid decisions are made entirely independent of the admissions process.
Drew partners with NAIS' Student and School Services (SSS) to collect and analyze your financial information online. This service is widely used by independent schools and is proven to be secure and user-friendly.
To learn more and prepare for your application, visit www.sss.nais.org, or contact SSS directly at 800.344.8328.
If you have any questions about Financial Aid, please do not hesitate to contact Director of Admissions Joanna Lovett at JoannaLovett@drewschool.org or 415. 430. 3771.
Financial aid applicants and returning students must submit a Parent’s Financial Aid Statement (PFS) and all tax documents for 2019 to SSS by January 7, 2021. No financial aid awards can be offered without a completed financial aid application. Click here to complete the PFS form.
Drew's SSS code is 2888.
Applicants and returning students' 2020 tax documents must be uploaded to SSS by Feb. 10. You will be required to submit your Form 1040, supporting schedules and W-2s or 1099 by the deadline.
SSS will accept your documents either uploaded directly to the SSS site or mailed to SSS.
Notice of financial aid awards for new students will accompany letters of acceptance and will be emailed March 19, 2021, and your response is due by March 25, 2021. Enrollment agreements and financial aid awards for returning students are emailed in February.
