    2. Checks may be sent to Simple Tuition Solutions, 3909 Hartzdale Dr, Ste 907, Camp Hill, PA 17011. 


    D. Submit Required Documents
    After your STS application fee is received and processed, you will be sent an email that introduces you to the STS application processor that will be handling the review of your application and outlines what documents you need to provide.  You may submit these documents by the required due date in two ways:

    Submitting Documents Online
    Scan or take a photo of your financial documents and upload them into STS’s system using STS’s upload feature. This is the fastest way to provide STS with your required financial documentation.

    Submitting Documents By Mail
    Mail signed copies of your financial documents to STS, P.O. Box 779, Camp Hill, PA 17001.  ***NOTE: This is a different address from that which checks are sent to.***

    E. Verification and Review by STS
    Once STS has received all of the required financial documentation from you, the STS application processors will verify the data and review your entire application per Pennsylvania State Law to determine your eligibility for financial assistance. STS will send you an email when this verification/review process is completed.


    F. Notification of Financial Assistance
    Notifications of all need-based financial assistance (tuition) awards will most-likely be made by August 1, 2022.  You will be notified by email. At that time, questions regarding your family's award should be directed to the OLVCS bookkeeper in the school office. Questions regarding the STS application process should be directed to your assigned STS application processor (see D, above) or STS Support (717-599-7611, Option 1 or support@simpletuitionsolutions.org).
