Students who did not have KMSL for all of the years they were enrolled are able to apply for the Retro for those years in which they did not receive KMSL. For instance, if you received it your first year, but not years two and three, you can apply for the retro for those two years. You can also apply for it for all four years if you didn't receive it for any prior years. For each Retro KMSL contract a student receives, one year of obligation will be required.
