Tuition & Tuition Assistance
Tuition at BSM is billed annually, semi-annually, or on a 10-month basis (if paying with this option, payments must be in the form of an electronic funds transfer). The registration fee is due upon course registration, as is the enrollment contract. We do not have an application or book fee.
Benilde-St. Margaret’s provides tuition assistance to families with students who have demonstrated financial need. Approximately 16% of the student body currently receives assistance. More than $1.9 million in assistance was awarded for the 2021-2022 school year, with an average award of $9,000.
All tuition assistance applicants must complete a Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS) application. TADS is used by most Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis to determine a family's tuition needs. TADS applications can be filled online or can be printed and mailed to you from TADS. Completing your TADS application online will expedite the process. The priority application deadline for TADS was February 15 and applications are now being reviewed on a rolling basis.
Submitting TADS applications after the deadline may affect a student’s financial award, as we have limited funding. Funding cannot be allocated to TADS applicants unless the student has been granted admission to Benilde-St. Margaret's. TADS may be filed prior to the admission decision, but notification of potential tuition assistance qualification will not be sent until after a student is admitted.
You may contact TADS for assistance completing the application or to check your application status. TADS does not have award information.
