Little Bit Tuition Aid Application

Little Bit utilizes FAST (Financial Aid for School Tuition) program to better support our tuition aid process and give families a better opportunity to represent their current circumstances. FAST will process tuition  aid applications, and Little Bit makes all decisions regarding who receives tuition assistance and how much. FAST is an online program that requires Internet access, an email account and a web browser. Once you have applied, your information will be used to determine if tuition aid will be granted.
