What if a private school has included an educational offsite class or trip in the cost of tuition? Can the student’s tuition aid cover those amounts included in tuition?

If all students in the grade are required to participate in the offsite class or trip, the cost of the class can be part of tuition and be covered by the tuition aid award. The tuition aid award can only cover the cost of the class and must exclude transportation, food and lodging. If the trip is an optional activity it would normally be covered by a fee that is not part of tuition and therefore is not eligible to be covered by a scholarship.
