Tuition Assistance 

Dear Parents:

Usdan welcomes your request for tuition assistance. We are able to award partial assistance to families based on need, in part, thanks to funds provided by the generosity of donors. If awarded, assistance to you will be based on demonstrated financial need.

We are happy to announce that applications for assistance will be completed online at no additional fee to the applying families.

Applications for tuition assistance will be accepted on a rolling basis and there is no guarantee funds will be available in all disciplines. 

Please note that assistance is only available for the 7-week program, and that your child must be enrolled with 7-week classes selected in order to apply. If you have not yet enrolled, you can do so here.

Please note: The TADS worksheet is not sent to TADS or Usdan. It is used at home to research the assorted financial questions, before sitting down to complete the online application.

The TADS application will ask you for the school you're applying for. Please select "Wheatley Heights" and then select “Usdan” from the drop-down menu.
