Financial Aid Process

KCU Financial Aid Process

  • Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online, using the school code G02474.
  • Complete the required entrance counseling.
  • Complete the Master Promissory Notes for the Direct Unsubsidized and Direct Graduate PLUS loans, if applicable.

Notification of Awards

Once your FAFSA has been received and reviewed, financial aid awards will be offered. Students can expect their initial award notification emails to be sent in mid to late April. You will be notified by email that your awards are offered and ready to be accepted or declined.


Financial aid disburses in two equal payments, with the first at the beginning of the start of fall classes. The second payment will occur after the spring start of classes. Disbursement schedules will be made available each academic year. The KCU Finance office will release credit balances to students after all tuition and fees for the term are paid. Students will be notified by email from the Finance office when their credit balance is available.
