How does BEPS ensure confidentiality throughout the financial aid process?

Protecting the confidentiality of personal data is one of the most important tasks for our financial aid office. All financial data and subsequent proceedings with BEPS are strictly confidential; only members of the Financial Aid Committee have access to a family’s information. BEPS faculty are not privileged to any financial information regarding students. Families can take steps to ensure confidentiality. Your family should use school-established channels for submitting an application, as well as disputing or appealing a financial aid decision. Additionally, your family should respect confidentiality by not disclosing financial aid outcomes to any other community members.

Can I appeal the Financial Aid grant I received?

Families may request reconsideration by the Financial Aid Committee upon receipt of a financial aid decision. The only condition under which an appeal may be filed is if there is new information available for consideration that wasn’t previously known. If there is no new information to be submitted, an appeal will not be considered. A detailed monthly budget of household income and expenses, a letter to the Financial Aid Committee explaining the request for additional aid, and additional documentation of unusual circumstances are required to process appeals.

If my child enrols without receiving a financial aid package, can we expect to receive aid in future years?

BEPS recognises that there are unfortunate events that change a family’s ability to contribute to school fees, and BEPS will work with families to formulate a plan for financing. If your child does not receive a financial aid grant and your family cannot afford to finance full tuition for the remaining years, we strongly recommend that your child does not enrol.

Will my child continue to receive Financial Aid from year to year?

BEPS renews grants based on a family’s demonstrated financial need. Therefore, families must annually update a report of their income, assets and debts. BEPS remains committed to partnering with families but recognises that a family’s ability to contribute towards school fees may increase or decrease annually. With no change in the financial profile, a family can expect their parent contribution towards school fees to increase slightly each year, typically equal to the percentage increase in school fees.
