Adjusted Tuition Application Process and Timelines

Adjusted Tuition Application Process

In October 2019, School and Student Services (SSS) will be accepting Adjusted Tuition applications for the 2020-2021 school year. 

Please note that applicants must electronically submit the following to SSS:

  • Processing fee of $51
  • Complete copies of signed current year (2019) and prior year (2018) federal and state tax forms, including all schedules and attachments.
  • Copies of W-2s
  • A completed IRS form 4506-T
  • FBAR forms for Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts, if applicable.
  • Filing for an extension may disqualify applicants from Adjusted Tuition.
  • No Adjusted Tuition decision is final until the official tax returns are received.
  • The school requires applications and tax forms from all individuals who have financial custody of the applicant child(ren). 

Adjusted Tuition Timeline

The SSS application will be open on October 1st (which is when applications will be open). Please note the requirements mentioned above. Earlier than usual tax document preparation may be necessary in order to upload state and federal tax documents to the SSS platform by the 2020 deadline.

Should you need additional guidance, please contact adjustedtuition@cais.org. Please do not contact Admissions as they will not be able to assist you.
