Gould's financial aid program is designed to make a Gould education possible for all families based on demonstrated financial need and the availability of funds. Gould is proud to use the Clarity Application
to determine a family’s level of financial need based on the information that families share in the application which includes assets, income, expenses, and debts.
To get started, please go to the Clarity Application
and create an account. The application typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete. Your 1040 and W2 documents from 2022 will be automatically transferred from the IRS when you complete the verification step, so you will no longer need to upload those documents manually. The Clarity Application is also mobile-friendly so you can complete it from anywhere. You are able to save your progress and return at any time. At the end of the application, there is a $60 fee to submit, and you can share your application with additional schools that accept the Clarity Application for no additional charge. Simply use the dropdown menu in the application to select those schools.
Please remember to return to your dashboard after you complete and submit your Clarity Application, as Gould requires you to upload additional tax documentation including 1040s, and W2s, and for family members who own a business, your Schedule K, E and/or S4s, and any other related tax documents.
Families will need to submit a Clarity application each year in order to qualify for financial aid; however, Clarity retains your information from previous applications, so it will be even easier to reapply.
