Unity Academy of Chicago welcomes all interested families to apply for admission regardless of their ability to pay the full tuition. Our school offers financial aid to assist families in making education affordable. Financial assistance may vary in amount and is based on the need or financial status of the family, the number of requests received, and the amount of financial aid funds that are available for a given school year. Financial aid may be applied for at any time before or after the admissions process.
To ensure complete privacy, we use a third-party organization called BeneFAQ to help us accurately and fairly assess a family’s ability to pay. BeneFAQ has been supporting families seeking tuition assistance for over 20 years. Their application process will request financial details that primarily consist of income, expenses, assets, and debts. BeneFAQ uses that information to calculate a “Family Anticipated Contribution Total” (FACT Report) and sends us that information. Once received, we will reach out to you to discuss the results.
To complete your confidential financial aid application, please follow the directions below:
Step 1: Navigate to www.benefaq.com, select the “Parent Login” button from the upper right, and create a new account.
Step 2: Click the APPLY button. Choose the application year. Enter our school number (11153). Click the “Pay and Create App” button to proceed and enter your credit card information. The fee to complete an application is $35.
Step 3: Fill out all the sections of the application. At the end of the application, once you have reviewed your entries and clicked “Submit App & Proceed” you will be asked to upload required documentation. BeneFAQ will begin verifying your application once the application is complete with all supporting documentation.
If you have any questions, please click on the Questions/Clarifications link at the upper right-hand side of the online application or you may contact BeneFAQ directly at [email protected].
