The A Better Chance application is self-monitored. You will be able to view the status of your application through your online portal. Review our Online Application Guidelines and FAQs for instructions
Our main method of communication is email. During the application process, A Better Chance will send communications about upcoming information sessions, the release of the application, and missing items. Be sure to use a personal email address that you check regularly when beginning the application process, check your junk/spam, and add email@example.com to your email contacts.
We use income as a criterion for eligibility in order to best serve those in need of our services. Additionally, we use your financial information to make determinations about eligibility for our Community Schools Program and fee waivers for testing and financial aid applications. If you have questions about income, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Better Chance hosts a financial aid workshop during the candidate process with information on how to apply, when to apply, and how financial aid is determined by schools. However, we encourage you to do your own research as well.
