Financial Aid

Making Hotchkiss Affordable

We are committed to providing more than $9.4 million in financial support each year to deserving students. Currently, 33 percent of our student body receives some level of need-based financial aid — and nearly 54 percent of our boarding students on financial aid come from families with household incomes of less than $125,000.

If you are unsure about how you might qualify or need help planning, use the Financial Aid Estimator to obtain an estimate.

The Financial Aid Process

For U.S. Students

To determine fair and equitable financial aid awards, Hotchkiss subscribes to the principles and the needs analysis system of School and Student Services (SSS) for Financial Aid. Families can apply for financial aid online by visiting sssbynais.org/parents and completing the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS). The Hotchkiss School code is 4012. If the PFS does not contain information for both parents, the non-custodial parent must complete a separate PFS. If either parent has remarried, the assets of the stepparent are considered, bearing in mind the obligations of that stepparent to his or her natural children.

Reminder
Please send all financial documentation to:
SSS by NAIS
PO Box 449
Randolph, MA 02368-0449
(800) 344-8328

For overnight mail, use this address:
SSS by NAIS
Application Processing Center
15 Dan Road, Suite 102
Canton, MA 02021

In addition to completing a PFS, families must submit to SSS the following information, along with a Required Documents Cover Sheet (found on the SSS website):
  • 2016 and 2015 W-2s (if applicable)
  • 2016 and 2015 tax returns and all supporting schedules
  • If self-employed, please submit a Schedule C.
  • If income is in the form of rental income, royalties, or is income reported on a K1 from a Partnership or S Corporation, please submit a Schedule E, and respective K1s.
  • 2016 and 2015 S-Corp or Partnership returns (if applicable) (1065 and/or 1120S)
