Financial 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, over 40 percent of our student body participates in the financial aid program with more than $2 million awarded annually. The financial aid process is confidential and begins mid-February. We strongly encourage all families to apply. Please contact the Admissions Office (515.222.1025) or the Business Office (515.222.1015) with questions.
