Financial Assistance

Urban is committed to maintaining a strong financial assistance program to ensure an Urban education remains accessible to qualified students regardless of their economic circumstances. Urban offers financial assistance based on both a family's need and the availability of funds. Families should not hesitate to complete the application process if they believe that they may qualify for tuition assistance. 

To provide full access to the range of opportunities at the school, Urban also supports non-tuition expenses based on the percentage of tuition-support a student receives. These expenses include books, laptop fees, outdoor and global education trips, prom tickets, athletic practice gear, any college-related expenses such as standardized tests, college visits and specialized tutoring, and a food and beverage allowance in our cafes for students with high assistance packages. See additional items here.

Admissions decisions are made independently from financial assistance decisions. If accepted, details about your financial assistance package will accompany your letter of acceptance to Urban. If you have any questions about your financial assistance package or would like to appeal, please reach out to the Admissions team.
