Dallas Lutheran School follows the guidelines of the FACTS School Management System (FACTS), a third party organization which analyzes the financial situation of applicants based on a number of factors. It is difficult to predict whether a family will qualify for financial aid, as circumstances vary so widely and overall demand for financial aid may vary from year to year. In order to begin the process you have to file a Grant in Aid Application with FACTS. All information given to FACTS and the Financial Aid Committee will be treated as confidential.
Our Financial Aid Programs are designed to provide assistance for students who attend Dallas Lutheran School. Any student who has a financial need is eligible. Grants, when issued, are applied directly to tuition and do not imply a continuing grant in forthcoming years. Student's grades, activities, and attendance must be on track for graduation which will be reviewed at the close of each semester. To be considered for a grant, a new application must be submitted each year.
Financial Aid Programs are open by application to students currently attending Dallas Lutheran School and to other students who are officially enrolled for the next school term. (Enrollment process and fees must be completed before the Application is submitted.) The Enrollment fee will be refunded in the event that a student is not accepted, or the financial aid grant is not sufficient; otherwise the Enrollment fee is non-refundable.
Before completing the application for a grant, the student is to first approach his/her home parish to determine if financial assistance is available from that parish.
In additon to the online application with FACTS the "DLS Reccomendation of Pastor" must be completed and submitted to the DLS Association Office. This form is available in the school office.
Once this form is received and the online FACTS application is completed (including the submission of all required supporting documents), your family will be eligible for consideration for financial aid for the forthcoming school term. The Financial Aid Committee will begin meeting in February and March to process all completed files and determined awards.
Student tuition balances must be current in order for the application to be processed. All recipients of Financial Aid may be required to have tuition withdrawn through an ACH that is set up through the Accountant's office.
If you have any further questions, please call the school Association Office at 214-349-8912.

Dallas Lutheran School has financial and contractual arrangements with faculty, staff, vendors, etc., which are made in the spring prior to each school year. THESE OBLIGATIONS MAKE IT CRITICAL THAT WE ASK ALL FAMILIES TO COMMIT FINANCIALLY FOR THE ENTIRE SCHOOL YEAR BY MARCH 31st. The tuition payments will be April 1st through March 1st of the following year, a total of twelve months.
IN ORDER FOR DALLAS LUTHERAN TO MEET ITS CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS, THERE IS NO REFUND FOR ANY REASON.
THE GUIDELINES LISTED BELOW WILL BE FOLLOWED (ALSO SEE CONTRACT OF ENROLLMENT):
Each student must pay a deposit annually at the time of enrollment. This deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable.
Payment plan must be agreed to at time of registration. For the twelve (12) month payment plan, the first payment is due on or before April 1st prior to the school year and the final payment is due on or before March 1st.
If any tuition payment is not paid by the 15th of the month in which it is due, a $50 late fee will be charged. IN ORDER FOR A STUDENT TO BEGIN SCHOOL IN AUGUST, ALL TUITION AND FEES DUE MUST BE PAID, INCLUDING THE AUGUST 1st PAYMENT AT WHICH TIME PAYMENT PLAN WILL BE BASED ON EIGHT MONTHS WITH THE LAST PAYMENT DUE MARCH 1st.
If any tuition owed remains unpaid for 15 days after it is due, then DLS will require the Parent/Guardian to enroll in a monthly automatic bank draft plan. STUDENT WILL BE DISMISSED UNLESS PROPER ARRANGEMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE FOR PAYMENT OF TUITION, FEES, AND LATE FEES.
For families applying for financial aid, student must be enrolled, contract signed, and enrollment fee paid BEFORE the application can be processed. The first tuition payment deducted on April 1st will be for the full monthly tuition payment. After financial aid has been determined, tuition will be adjusted for the April 1st through March 1st payments. Financial Assistance is on a first come first serve basis.
A $50 service fee will be charged for any check returned by a bank for insufficient funds or for any other reason.
Report cards, grades, testing results, and transcripts of a student(s) will not be released to the Parent/Guardian or any other person if the Parent/Guardian has any amounts due to DLS.
