Financial Assistance

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 equal access to the full range of opportunities at the school, Urban also supports non-tuition expenses based on the percentage of tuition a student receives. This includes, but is not limited to, books, outdoor or global education trips, tutoring, food and snacks, school social events, athletic practice gear and any college-related expenses such as standardized tests. 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.

Could my Family Qualify for Financial Assistance?

Income alone does not determine if a family might be eligible for financial assistance. As demonstrated below, a wide range of our community receives some form of assistance.

We understand that applying for assistance may be confusing and overwhelming. We are excited to get to know you and work together with you and your family throughout this process. 

If you have any other questions or concerns, please contact the Urban Admissions Office by calling 415 593 9555 or email
