Click on the prompt to begin your Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS). You only need to complete one PFS, even if you have several children applying to MacDuffie. Each parent household must complete a PFS. If an applicant’s parents are divorced or separated, each parent must file a PFS form and submit the required documentation separately. In addition, families who own a business or a farm must file a business/farm statement, which can also be completed on the SSS website.
You will be given a username and password that will allow you to return to your PFS at a later date before submitting your completed PFS. Your information will be secure.
For help uploading documents for your PFS, check the SSS website or contact them directly at: (800) 344-8328.
A letter notifying the recipient of awarded financial aid is sent at the same time as the letter of admission. A signed copy of the financial aid agreement should be returned with the deposit prior to April 10. This deposit signifies understanding and acceptance of the award.
