Financial aid packages are only awarded on a yearly basis. Families interested in financial aid need to apply for it each year their student attends DSA.
Before that process starts, returning students must be re-enrolled in order to apply for financial aid.
The next step is to confirm your child’s Florida State Scholarships if they have been awarded any. For these scholarships, the application does not need to be resubmitted. However, you need to confirm that your child is continuing to attend DSA so that you will receive the funds.
This is done through your portal with the Florida state scholarships.
If you have any questions about renewing these scholarships, reach out to our business office.
Financial aid assessments for re-enrolling students will be available February 1, and must be submitted by March 4 through the TADS portal.
Go to www.mytads.com and select the Financial Aid Assessment link.
Once you create a family login, you can complete the online application.
Tuition assistance is awarded based on individual needs as recommended by TADS.
There is a $39 fee that is paid to TADS at the completion of the application process.
Note: It’s important that families are following up with emails from TADS even after their assessment was submitted. There are occasions where additional documents are needed from www.mytads.com to complete the assessment.
Once you complete your TADS assessment, the DSA business office will take between 2-4 weeks to process and review your family’s information in TADS, and then communicate award packages to the families that have qualified.
