FAQs

  • As part of our mission, Malvern seeks cultural, economic, ethnic, and social diversity in its student body.  Excellent students with various talents are awarded grants to enable them to attend Malvern. The repayment of grants is NOT required.
  • Financial Aid is awarded on an annual basis and will continue based on the student’s successful performance and the family’s continued need. Both the parent and student are responsible for ensuring that financial aid is renewed each year. The parent must complete an updated financial aid package completing all of the steps required in the previous year and the student must meet the following guidelines:
    • Maintain an outstanding discipline record
    • Maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0
    • Participate in two school activities. School activities include but are not limited to: Athletic Teams, Non-Curricular Arts, Music Organizations, and school clubs.

        Malvern reserves the right to reduce or eliminate a student’s grant if the student does not meet the guidelines
        specified above.

  • Once an Admission decision has been reached and all financial aid forms are received by the Admissions Office, the Admissions Committee will review the files of qualified candidates beginning in December.
    Financial Aid Applications will not be reviewed prior to receipt of a completed Admissions Package and an Admissions decision has been reached.
  • The School reviews candidates for financial aid on a rolling basis. Funds are limited. Accepted students requiring financial aid who do not receive an award package initially will be placed in the financial aid wait pool and, depending on the strength of other candidates, may be reconsidered for a grant at a later time.
  • School policy requires that divorced, separated, or remarried parents must submit the information of both natural parents and both step-parents when applicable. In addition, guardians of students or students residing with relatives or grandparents must submit the financial data for the appropriate parties. Trusts, court decrees and/or divorce settlements must also be submitted to the Admissions Office. All documentation will be kept confidential.
  • Unless placed on financial aid waiting list, all decisions of the Financial Aid Committee are final. Any candidate’s family who receives a grant will be given 10 to 14 days to accept the grant. The financial aid grant is guaranteed by a non-refundable deposit not to exceed $1,000, an Affidavit of Enrollment and an enrollment agreement signed by all financially responsible parents or guardians. The Affidavit of Enrollment and the enrollment agreement obligate a family for the balance of the tuition.
  • Usually, freshman candidates will be notified of any financial aid award determinations in January.

The Admissions Office staff members are ready to assist you in any way they can. Please do not hesitate to contact them if you have any questions regarding financial aid.
