Need-Based Financial Aid
Seton Hall Prep is able to offer limited need-based financial assistance based upon demonstrated need.
- Approximately 30% of The Prep’s families receive need-based financial assistance.

- A preliminary offer will be included in the decision mailing that will be sent out on January 12th, 2017 based upon the information provided by the family.
- Final need-based financial assistance decisions are made in early May based upon a more detailed application using a Parent Financial Statement (PFS) with School & Student Services using SHP's school code 7265. The deadline to apply for need-based financial assistance for current families who will have a son or sons returning to SHP the following year is April 17th.
