Admitted Student Information

You must submit a copy of your Final High School Transcript before any aid will be applied to your student account. Please submit this by June 30.

The Office of Financial Aid welcomes you!

We understand that financial aid can be an important part of the picture as you begin your time at K.

Recently Admitted?

Congratulations on your admission.  You've worked hard to get here.  To discover if you are eligible for need-based financial aid, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as early as Oct 1.

In some instances, we may request additional information to complete our analysis. Any requests for more information will be sent directly to the applicant’s household.

Filed my FAFSA, when will I receive an Award Letter?

Students seeking need-based financial aid will be notified of their complete financial aid package after the student has been informed of their admission and a FAFSA has been submitted to the College.  We recommend you file the FAFSA prior to the dates listed below to ensure your financial aid award is sent to you in a timely manner.

Important Notes:

Accepting Aid:

  • You do not need to formally accept your financial aid offer. If you have deposited, we know that you accept all the gift aid (scholarships and grants) offered.

Loan Requirements:

  • You do have responsibilities regarding the loans offered. Look for an email from the Office of Financial Aid in June with instructions for accepting, declining or reducing your loan amounts. In addition, you can find all the important information about your loans on the Loan Page.


  • If you have questions about how you will be billed and when, please visit the Student Accounts website to find information about bills, payment plans, cost and due dates.
