Financial Aid

At East Linn Christian, we strongly believe that Christian education is not a commodity. It is a ministry. It is a commitment. It is a connection – a connection between your child’s needs and your family philosophy and our philosophy.

That’s why at East Linn Christian, the first and most important consideration is what is best educationally for your child. All other considerations are secondary. But money is important, and tuition is an investment into the life of your child.

We have a very robust needs-based scholarship program to assist Christian families. East Linn Christian provides tuition aid to 100% of families who demonstrate a financial need. It is imperative that we award this aid as fairly and wisely as possible. That is why we have chosen to use FACTS, an impartial third-party service, to assist us in analyzing your family’s needs.

Our goal is that money will not stand in the way of your pursuit for a Christian education in your child’s life. FACTS works with schools to help them assess financial need and allocate financial aid to families most in need. Their system features:

  • An easy-to-complete online application
  • A secure environment that protects your personal information
  • A single application for multiple awards
  • Skilled representatives who can answer all of your questions

Step 1: Complete the online application
Step 2: Submit your Federal Form 1040 Income Tax Return, W-2 forms, and supporting documentation for non-taxable income to FACTS. You can upload documents by logging into your online account or fax them to 866-315-9264. Draft or Preview Copy tax documents will not be accepted.

Please allow at least two weeks for processing your application.

Why do I have to provide this personal and confidential information?
FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment must verify your expenses and household income to assist your institution in making an informed decision about the amount of financial aid needed for each family.

How can I check the status of my application?
Once you have completed the online application, you will be able to log on to the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment website to check the status of your application.

If you have any other questions, our Finance Manager, Jamie Lockwood, will be glad to help. Call her at (541) 259-2324.
