Financial Aid Process

  1. Submit your FAFSA at  This allows you to apply for federal loans, grants and work-study funding. If you apply after the priority deadline of March 1, your chances of receiving certain types of financial aid are reduced. Federal Pell Grant and Federal Direct Student Loan eligibility is not affected by the priority deadline
  2. After you submit your FAFSA, you will be given your estimated family contribution.  K-State uses this to determine your aid eligibility and prepares your financial aid package, which may include loans, grants, work-study, and/or K-State scholarships.
  3. In April, you will receive a letter from Kansas State University listing the financial aid you can expect for the school year.  Log on to your student account (iSIS) to accept or reject each award.  Your financial aid package may be delayed if you have been selected for verification.
