Spring Financial Aid

Financial aid awards are initially processed for Fall and Spring semesters. All students must have a valid 2020-2021 FAFSA on file in order to be considered for Spring 2021 aid.  Eligibility for transfers or students enrolling at KSU for the first time this Spring will be determined individually and awarded solely for Spring term. 

If you have not applied for financial aid and wish to do so, complete the 2020-2021 FAFSA

Spring 2021 Financial Aid Deadlines

Nov. 1, 2020 - priority deadline to complete the 2020-2021 FAFSA

See All Financial Aid Deadlines

If you complete the FAFSA for Spring after Nov. 1, 2020, you may still be awarded aid, but it may not arrive before the payment deadline, so be prepared to pay out of pocket for your tuition and fees to ensure that your classes will not be dropped for non-payment. 

Dec. 1, 2020 - final deadline for filing the FAFSA and submitting all documents to be considered for Spring 2021 aid

HOPE and Zell Miller Scholarship

If you are eligible for the HOPE Scholarship or Zell Miller Scholarship, you may be eligible for these awards in the Spring.  There is no minimum number of hours of enrollment required to receive these scholarships. Students attending KSU for the first time should submit a FAFSA or a GSFApp to determine eligibility.  Official academic transcripts must be received before eligibility for HOPE Programs can be determined.

Student Loans for Spring

You must be enrolled at least half time (six hours for undergraduate students, five hours for graduate students) to receive student loans.

If you have questions about your eligibility or award information, contact the Office of Student Financial Aid or your financial aid counselor. Visit the Financial Aid Contact Us page for a counselor list, office hours and locations.
