Financial Aid

Thank you for completing the financial aid application form. To complete the application process, please upload the following forms in one of the following formats: doc, docx, jpg, pdf. It is fine to snap a photo of documents with your phone. Please make sure the image is not blurry. While the upload is secure, we do recommend that you block out social security numbers as an additional measure of security.

You’ll have the opportunity to upload multiple files. You do not need to combine them into one file.

The following supplemental materials are requested:

  • Most recent Federal Income Tax Return for all persons in the primary household. 2018 is preferred. If 2018 is not yet available, submit your 2017 Tax Return(s) along with your two most recent pay stubs. REQUIRED

  • Letter from the student outlining why they want to attend YMA. REQUIRED

  • Any additional documentation showing need (example: proof of free or reduced lunch status, financial aid award statements from other organizations or schools, housing assistance documentation, etc.). RECOMMENDED

  • Letter of recommendation from the student’s most recent instructor (if applicable). RECOMMENDED
