In situations when the school may receive the application and/or documentation from the family, the school may transmit all documents to CTS via secure upload, fax or US Postal Service.
The normal mode for applying would be online. Those families not comfortable with an online application may submit their applications to CTS on paper via mail or fax.
CTS will work with the school to make special accommodations whenever necessary.
Detailed, thorough Analysis
We attempt to understand each school's goals and philosophy regarding tuition grants, aid and assistance when preparing our assessments.
The purpose of our recommendations will be to aid the school staff in their final decision regarding fund allocation. We verify income sources, amounts reported and listed expenses.
We verify the amounts on each application against 1040s, W-2s and other documentation to flag reporting errors and any out-of-line amounts.
CTS will follow-up on incomplete applications to collect necessary documentation.
Our summary report will indicate each family's overall financial condition along with our determination of what the "family's ability to pay" is for each application. Our assessment and recommendation will be for the school's use in making their determination.
The school maintains full control of the amounts of aid distributed.
Our reports will be emailed to the school.
Easy, Secure Document Storage
CTS will archive digital files of all documents for school review for a period of 5 years.
Personal and financial information is protected by our secure environment.
