Affording a Pingree Education

Pingree believes that access to educational excellence should be available to all qualified students, regardless of financial means. Pingree offers need-based financial aid in hopes that no student will be discouraged from applying due to financial need. Thirty-eight percent of Pingree's student body receive tuition assistance.

The 2018–2019 tuition is $46,000. This comprehensive fee includes lunch. Additional fees for books and other academic materials can be estimated at $750. A limited fund is reserved for Pingree students who may need financial support to assist with required additional expenses related to their educational experience.

Applying for Financial Aid

The deadline to apply for financial aid is January 1 for returning families and January 15 for new families.

Applications for financial aid must be completed online through the School and Student Services (SSS) website at sss.nais.org. In addition, families must submit a signed copy of the most recently filed 1040 tax form, with all attendant schedules, to the Financial Aid Office by the application deadlines noted above. All returning families are required to reapply for financial aid on an annual basis.

(Please note, these forms can also be uploaded online to a secure web portal at sss.nais.org.) No financial aid will be granted unless these steps are taken.
