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.
  • The KCU Financial Aid office requires completion of Workday onboarding to complete the financial aid process for students who have a completed FAFSA on file. Incoming students will be able to complete on-boarding questionnaires upon acceptance to KCU and payment of the acceptance fee for COM and matriculation fee for COB programs.

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.

Disbursement

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. Click here for the disbursement and refund schedule.
