Financial Aid

We encourage students to complete the FAFSA in order to be considered for federal aid. To complete the FAFSA, please visit FAFSA application site and provide the school code for the University of Kansas: 001948.

Federal assistance includes the following:

  • Federal Pell Grant
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)
  • Federal Work Study
  • Federal Direct Loans (subsidized, unsubsidized, Parent PLUS)

The FAFSA enables the school to consider all scholarship funds available and must be completed annually.

Don't wait to be accepted into the program before beginning 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 FAFSA.

The FAFSA priority deadline is March 1.

After the priority deadline, any remaining financial aid will be awarded as available. Some grants and low-interest loans have limited funding. 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 is completed.

Financial aid for students enrolled at KU Medical Center is separate from KU Lawrence campus financial aid. Contact the Office of Student Financial Aid for questions or additional information regarding tuition, fees and financial aid.
