HMI is proud of our ability to make our programs affordable for families with diverse incomes by offering “need-based” financial aid. What does this mean? Click here.
Families who wish to be considered for financial aid should submit their financial aid application at the same time as the program application deadline (February 15 for the HMI Semester and Summer Term). Students from non-member independent schools should check with their schools to understand their policies regarding tuition remission.
Calculating Financial Aid
HMI uses School and Student Services (SSS), a service of the National Association of Independent Schools, to process financial aid applications. SSS provides schools with an estimated amount each family can contribute to educational expenses. This then helps the school make fair and objective financial aid decisions.
To begin your financial aid application please visit SSS by NAIS.
You may download this guide from SSS for more information regarding how to complete a financial aid application. Specific questions about the SSS application are best directed to the SSS Help Desk, accessible via phone at 800-344-8328.
The HMI school code is 2096.
Financial Aid Policies
Financial aid policies vary widely between different sending schools. The following list details the policies that govern financial aid for the HMI Semester and Summer Term:
- For priority consideration, the financial aid application should be completed by the same date as the application deadline.
- All financial aid awards, with the exception of the Lake County Scholarships, are based on need as determined by the Financial Aid Committee.
- Parents are expected to support the student to the extent they are able, as determined by SSS (School and Student Service for Financial Aid) and the High Mountain Institute.
- In cases of divorce or separation, each parent should complete the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS).
- If either parent remarries, the financial information of the stepparent must be included on the PFS.
- It is essential that applicants complete and file all application forms and required tax forms on time. Late applications may not receive full consideration.
- All financial aid records are kept confidential. Only the Financial Aid Committee has access to financial aid information.
