Financial Aid for Returning Students

Financial aid amounts remain consistent throughout a student's enrollment unless family financial circumstances change significantly. Families must submit a new application for financial aid each spring so that the Financial Aid Committee can review and make any appropriate adjustments based upon changes in family financial circumstances.

Current Interlochen families from the US and Canada who are seeking need-based financial aid for the 2014-15 school year must submit the following documents to TADS no later than February 15, 2014. (Other international students: click here for special instructions.)

  1. TADS application for financial aid.
  2. Complete 2013 federal income tax return including all W-2s and/or 1099s.
  3. Special Circumstances Letter (Optional). Families may choose to submit a letter that details any new circumstances or expenses.

Please follow the link below to begin the TADS application process:

TADS will provide document submission instructions at the end of the online application. Please do not send any financial aid application materials or tax documentation to Interlochen.

Reenrollment Timeline for Returning Families

Complete financial aid applications, including 2013 federal income tax returns, are due no later than February 15, 2014. Financial aid packages will be emailed on Friday, March 14, 2014. Signed enrollment agreements and a non-refundable tuition deposit of $2,500 will be due by Friday, April 4, 2014.

Interlochen experienced record enrollment for the 2013-14 school year and we expect an even larger applicant pool for 2014-15, which means admission for the coming year will be more competitive than ever. Returning students are given priority for financial aid, but missed deadlines may result in reduced or cancelled financial aid packages. Please plan carefully to ensure compliance with deadlines.

Please do not hesitate to contact the financial aid office at if you have any questions.
