Get Started: Apply for Financial Aid
To complete the FAFSA, visit the FAFSA application site and provide the school code for the University of Kansas: 001948.
Students should not wait to be accepted into an academic program to begin the financial aid process. Even if the application deadline for the intended program is later in the year, students are strongly encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Financial Aid (FAFSA) by the March 1 priority deadline.
Some financial aid grants and low-interest loans have limited funding. After the priority deadline, any remaining financial aid will be awarded as available.
Even if financial aid will not be requested, students are encouraged to file the FAFSA annually. The FAFSA enables the school to consider all scholarship funds available. The FAFSA must be completed annually.
The total financial aid award package, including scholarships, loans or need-based aid, cannot be finalized until the student's application materials and fee have been received and admission to KU has been completed.
