For the 2016-2017 school year, Omni Montessori School will be utilizing the online service of Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) to process applications. FAST will be the standard submission format for all financial aid applications.
To begin the financial aid process, click on the FAST button below.
The application process is self-guided. You may navigate in and out of the program, allowing you to partially complete an application and return to it at a later time. We suggest reading the instructions before beginning your application. FAST provides assistance in application completion through online help and a 24/7 helpdesk. The application fee is $43.00 and is to be paid by credit card to FAST at the end of the application submittal process. If you do not have a credit card or cannot budget the fee, please contact Lori Lauman at 704-541-1326 ext. 34 for assistance.
Upon completion of the online application, you will be required to submit copies of your 2016 federal income tax return with all applicable schedules and W-2’s directly to FAST. You may submit your taxes via mail or electronically via scanning. Instructions for submitting tax documents are detailed in the online application instructions and in an email that you will receive from FAST upon application submission.
The online submission deadline for applications and tax returns of returning Omni students is March 4, 2017. The goal is to have award determinations made and communicated in writing to all returning families by March 31, 2017. The online submission deadline for applications and tax returns of new Omni students is May 5, 2017. The goal is to have award determinations made and communicated in writing to all new families by May 31, 2017.
Omni Montessori School recognizes that families applying for financial assistance may not wish to commit to the Enrollment and Tuition Contract(s) without knowing the amount of financial aid that will be provided for each student in the family. Therefore, families applying for financial aid should indicate this by answering yes to the financial aid question during the on-line (re)enrollment process. In this manner, Omni Montessori School will be able to hold a spot in the appropriate classroom and retain any applicable registration deposit on account for each financial aid applicant.
