Financial Assistance Application Steps

The following process ensures Catlin Gabel's financial assistance committee is able to track, review, and allocate our limited need-based financial assistance equitably and efficiently. The committee will consider only those applications that are completed by the stated deadlines. We urge you to fully disclose your financial situation and upload all required tax documents to avoid delay in reviewing and processing your application. Families with complicated or unusual financial circumstances may be asked to provide supplemental information or to meet with the financial assistance office by phone or Zoom.

Virtual, small group financial assistance Q&A sessions will be offered weekly. Please sign up in your Admission Portal.
