Tuition Assistance

The goal of Dowling Catholic’s tuition assistance program is to provide assistance to families who show a demonstrated financial need. In helping to cover a portion of the cost of tuition for qualifying families, we remain committed to making a Catholic education attainable for all who wish to attend. Currently, approximately 35 percent of our student body participates in the tuition assistance program with more than $2 million awarded annually. The tuition assistance process is confidential and begins early February. We strongly encourage all families needing assistance to apply. Please contact the Admissions Office (515.222.1025) or the Business Office (515.222.1015) with questions.
