Re-enrollment for 2019-2020 Academic Year

Enrollment contracts for the 2019-2020 academic year will be posted to MyBackpack in early February. To re-enroll your child at Peddie, you must return the signed contract and deposit within two weeks of receipt.

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.

2. Submit your 2018 W-2 Forms by January 15, 2019. Please upload your 2018 W-2 forms to peddie.org/sss by January 15, 2019. If you do not receive your W-2 forms until later in January, please upload the forms immediately after you receive them and no later than February 1, 2019.

Please note that the Peddie Financial Aid Office will be sending communications through the SSS portal this year. We encourage you to check your SSS portal frequently throughout this process and to respond to messages promptly. As always, if you have any questions about the financial aid process, please do not hesitate to call our office at (609) 944-7501.
