How do I apply for tuition assistance?

To be eligible for Beaumont tuition assistance awards, a FACTS Grant & Aid application must be completed.  Beaumont partners with FACTS, a tuition payment and aid portal, to collect tuition assistance applications.  FACTS evaluates a family’s tuition assistance application and Beaumont then uses a family’s FACTS determination to make award decisions.  Tuition assistance packages are awarded from a number of generous donor scholarship funds. 

The FACTS application has a $35 fee due at the time of submission.  The priority deadline for early tuition assistance decisions is November 15.  All applications completed after this date are reviewed on a rolling basis.  Visit the Beaumont FACTS application to apply.

Can my daughter earn college credit while attending Beaumont?  

Beaumont offers a college-preparatory curriculum that includes advanced courses in International Baccalaureate (IB), Advanced Placement (AP), and Honors.  Depending on one’s final exam score and the selected college, IB and AP courses can qualify for college credit, particularly upon completion of the IB Diploma.  Awarding credit is at the discretion of the college/university your daughter attends.  

In addition to possible credit, a Beaumont education adds significant value when students embark on higher education upon graduation.  Beaumont’s Class of 2021 earned over $15 million in merit scholarships to attend college/university, including a number of full-tuition scholarships.  84% of Beaumont’s alumnae graduate from college/university in four years, beating the national average of 41%, because they are prepared to succeed as collegians.  

When the potential cost of higher education is less, combined with a greater likelihood of graduating in four years and jump start on college credit, a Beaumont education is a compelling investment in your daughter’s future.
