All families of  Bulgarian seventh-grade students who have successfully passed the Entrance exam and are offered admission to the American College of Sofia may apply for a tuition fee reduction. After all required documents are submitted, the Financial Aid Committee convenes to determine appropriate fee reductions for each family. 

All applicants after Grade 8 and Grade 9 who have successfully passed the Admissions exam may enroll at ACS under the financial conditions determined for the rest of the Bulgarian students at the College. Students may apply for a tuition fee reduction (Financial Aid) corresponding to the financial need of their families.

Due to a generous donation by an American philanthropist, families from outside of Sofia are eligible for an additional tuition reduction. Families may apply for tuition reduction on the combined cost of tuition and housing. The amount of the tuition reduction is calculated according to the combined amount of tuition plus room and board.

Financial assistance at the American College is need-based, and fee reductions are only granted to families who can demonstrate financial need. Families may apply for a fee reduction each year their son/daughter is enrolled at the College.

For the students in the 2021-2022 school year, almost 90% of the applicants for tuition fee reduction were granted such. These reductions ranged from 10% to 100% of the annual tuition fee. Over 1,686,194 BGN was granted to the families of our students. 

Funding for financial aid has come largely from donations of individuals and foundations. Most notably, The Tianaderrah Foundation based in New York.
