What factors are considered in determining the amount that will be offered to families?
All of Foothill’s financial aid awards are based strictly on demonstrated need. Priority is given to current families. Foothill does not give scholarships for special talents or academic merit. Although family income level is a significant consideration, many other factors are considered in the decision-making process. These factors include, but are not limited to: the number of children attending schools for which tuition is paid, other family dependents, assets and liabilities, unusual expenses, etc. The school will learn of these special considerations from the information provided on the financial aid application and on any other supplemental information that families provide.
