Apply for Financial Aid

If your family is interested in applying for financial aid, please follow the process that is outlined below.

1) Submit Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) Online

October 1 is the first day you can start your PFS. The PFS must be completed by January 15 so that your family can be considered for financial aid. To help get you started, download a PDF (English version, Spanish version) of the official PFS Workbook and Instruction Booklet.

If you are applying for the first time, you must create an account; if not, use your existing login and password. Begin a PFS for academic year 2020-21. As a reference guide, we recommend that you download the PFS Workbook and Instruction Booklet. You can log out of PFS Online and then return later to complete your PFS.

Additional documentation such as 2020 W-2 forms and completed tax returns can be submitted at a later time. If you have more than one child applying to Nobles, you only have to complete one financial aid statement.

If you are a current Nobles family not receiving aid, please contact us via email before moving forward in the application process.

For parents who are separated, divorced or were never married, Nobles requires that each parent file a PFS along with additional tax documentation. Parents can be assured that all financial information received from one parent will not be shared with the other.

The fee of $51 is nonrefundable. Once you have paid for and submitted your PFS, our office will receive your information.

After you submit your PFS, you can go back and upload additional documents as well as view your Family Report, which summarizes the information we will receive.

2) Upload tax documents to PFS

You must upload additional tax documentation with your PFS online by March 1. You will need your 2020 Federal Income Tax Return 1040 with all related schedules and all W-2 forms.
