5. Request Financial Aid

FACTS Management makes quality education affordable for families by assisting schools in awarding financial aid. We work with schools to create a custom application and collect financial data so schools can make accurate award decisions based on financial need.

To apply for financial aid, visit online.factsmgt.com/aid.

After completing the online application, you will need to upload or fax all required supporting documentation. Uploaded documents must be in PDF format and the size of each document must be less than 20 MB. If you are unable to upload, fax the required documents to 866.315.9264. Please DO NOT use your mobile device to photo copy required documents due to problems with legibility.

The following supporting documents are required to complete the application process:

  • Copy of the most recent IRS Federal Form 1040, 1040A or 1040-EZ U.S. Individual Income Tax Return (the year of the tax return depends on the tax requirements of the school). If applicant and co-applicant file separately, we require both tax returns for the same tax year. We do not require State Tax Returns.
  • Copies of all the current year W-2 Wage and Tax Statements for both the applicant and co-applicant. NOTE: If you are applying before you have received all the current year W-2 Wage and Tax Statements, please submit them as soon as they become available.
  • Copies of all supporting tax documents if you have business income/loss from any of the following:
    Business - send Schedule C or C-EZ and Form 4562
    Depreciation and Amortization Farm - send Schedule F and Form 4562

    Estates and Trusts - send Schedule E (page 2), Form 1041 and Schedule K-1

IMPORTANT: If you file a tax return but do not have W-2 wages because you are self-employed, you will be required to submit a copy of your current year Federal Form 1040 Tax Return.

  • Copies of all supporting documentation for household Non-Taxable Income such as: Social Security Income, Welfare, Child Support, Food Stamps, Workers’ Compensation, and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). If you do not file a tax return, you are required to provide documentation of all income received.

All documentation received is imaged upon receipt and then destroyed.

You may login to your FACTS user account to review the status of your application. Please allow 2 weeks processing time from the date you provided the supporting documents before inquiring further about receipt and/or status of the uploaded or faxed documents.

6. See You at School!

Once you finish your application and financial responsibilities, we’ll let you know if you’re accepted. Our goal is to give you an admissions decision within a week of completing all steps of the admission process. Once accepted, you’ll submit an Enrollment Agreement and pay your deposit. Then we’ll see you on the first day of school. 


International Student Admissions

Applying for a United States Student Visa

In order for an international student (defined as any student holding a foreign passport) to enroll at a school in the United States, he or she must obtain an F-1 (or student) visa. U.S. embassies and consulates work from the same set of rules, which are then adapted to their host countries. Therefore you should inquire in advance about individual policies.

Students should plan ahead for their study in the U.S. and should allow plenty of time for visa processing. Keep in mind, however, that you should not apply for a student visa more than 90 days before the registration date noted on the I-20 form. The timetable for visa processing can vary widely depending on the volume of applications processed by an individual consulate or embassy. Notifications of acceptance or denial can range from one to ten weeks. June, July, and August are the busiest months for visa processing.

The I-20 Form

Brandon Hall School is authorized under Federal law to enroll nonimmigrant students. Prior to applying for an F-1 visa, you must complete Form I-20, Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status. The Form I-20 is a paper record of your information in the database called SEVIS. We will mail you a Form I-20. You will need to use that Form I-20 to pay the I-901 fee and to apply for the student visa.

Additional Required Documents

In addition to the online application and above supporting documents, the following are required for international students:
