For current Jayhawks

Receiving aid is a multistep process — one we can help guide you through. The first step is to file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid every year, which is key to obtaining state and federal dollars toward your education. Once you’ve accepted any awarded funds, we can help apply it to your costs.
