If your family is planning to apply for financial aid for the 2019-2020 academic year, either for the first time or as a returning student, you may begin this process now by completing the following steps:

1. Complete the Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) online by January 1, 2019.   The PFS must be completed through peddie.org/sss, and all tax documents and financial aid information must be uploaded through peddie.org/sss. Peddie cannot accept any documents by mail or email.
