TUITION, FINANCIAL AID AND SCHOLARSHIPS

Students who attend NOVA pay tuition and fees to cover expenses for classroom instruction, textbooks, and standardized evaluations (except external testing services). Scholarships and financial aid is available to students who meet the admission requirements and demonstrate need. An example of this is the Boris Trajkovski-NOVA scholarship program.

HOW TO QUALIFY FOR FINANCIAL AID

Students should not be deterred from applying to NOVA. Payment plans are offered and financial aid is available to families of students in grades 1 through 12 for whom the full cost of NOVA education would be prohibitive.

Our financial aid program serves two purposes:

  • It enables students to attend NOVA even though they may have a financial need.

  • It provides NOVA with a well qualified student body reflecting a broad social and economic mix.

Awards are made to families whose ability to pay is limited and to those of more substantial means who may need a small subsidy to meet our tuition charges. Financial aid awards are decided by the financial aid committee. The awards are both need and merit based. Families of the students should submit documentation to demonstrate financial need. 

HOW TO APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID

  1. Submit your child's application to NOVA (families pay a reduced application fee of 50€).

  2. Submit the Request for Financial Assistance (RFA) form.

  3. Collect all proof documents in support of your RFA form (salaries and other sources of income, loans and other expenditures, and all other relevant supporting documentation), include them with the RFA form.

  4. For High School Applicants: Send your child's recommendations from his/her recent English teacher, a teacher of his/her choice and the director of his/her recent school for academic excellence, positive attitude and leadership skills.

  5. For High School Applicants: After the student takes an English ability and math test at NOVA and results are known, and he/she passes the personal interview, you will be notified if he/she has been accepted.

  6. Only accepted students can be considered for financial aid. 

IS FINANCIAL AID RENEWABLE?

Families of students receiving financial aid must reapply each year. Financial aid awards may fluctuate depending on the size of the applicant pool for financial aid or on any changes in the family's demonstrated financial need. Students who receive financial assistance must demonstrate good academic standing and positive attitude.
