How Financial Aid Works

Since the founding of Mars Hill Bible School, the Board of Directors has been dedicated to ensuring that an education at MHBS is possible for families of all economic backgrounds who desire for their children to grow in a loving, Christ-filled environment. This financial aid is provided by caring donors who value the importance of Christian education. All financial aid is needs-based, and MHBS does not offer academic or athletic scholarships.

MHBS uses the FACTS Grant and Aid assessment program to determine financial need. Once FACTS has reviewed the completed application, FACTS provides MHBS with a report that includes a recommendation of how much a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. Upon approval of the recommendation,  a financial aid offer is sent to the applying family. The goal of this process is to provide a fair and equitable way to provide financial aid to as many families as possible.

How to Apply for Financial Aid

In order to apply for aid, the following procedures must be strictly adhered to:

  • ​Applicants must be enrolled and registration fee must be paid for the new school year. MHBS cannot consider financial aid awards for any prospective student who has NOT first completed and submitted an application for admission.
  • After your application for admission is completed, visit FACTS to apply for Grant and Aid.
  • After filling out the online FACTS application, you will be asked to upload, fax, or mail your tax documents to FACTS.
  • A letter will be mailed to you as soon as financial aid has been awarded.

​Please note: Financial Aid is not automatically renewed. A new application must be submitted each year for review.
