This page is designed to accumulate and share the latest updates from KWU regarding the Department of Education’s delays in disseminating FAFSA-related information. The university expects FAFSA information to be released to us in March, and at that time, we will work as quickly as possible to create your financial award package.

The university will be holding FAFSA bowls in PH 285 on the following dates and times to aid students with the process:
Feb. 15, 1-4 p.m.
Feb. 16, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. and 1-4 p.m.
Feb. 19, 1-4 p.m.
Feb. 19, 6-8 p.m. (this event will be held in Brown Mezzanine)
Feb. 23, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. and 1-4 p.m.

In addition, a FAFSA waiver is available through the Financial Aid office.

If you have any questions, please call 785-833-4315 or 785-833-4316.

Feb. 2, 2024 Email Update (sent to incoming students Feb. 2 and current students Feb. 13)

As you might know, recent, significant changes to the FAFSA are currently causing the delay of accurate, detailed, financial aid information for students attending college for the 2024-25 academic year. To help you and your family better understand the current situation, we want to provide you with some helpful information.

First and foremost, we currently expect financial information from the FAFSA form to be released to us in March. Once this information is received by our Financial Aid Office, we will work as quickly as possible to create your financial award package, containing not only your awards from KWU but also the state and federal aid indicated by your FAFSA application.

Second, you might receive estimates from other institutions projecting your financial aid. Please know that these documents are just that — estimates. They may prove to be inaccurate when your real FAFSA data becomes available, so we would like to caution you on making any final decisions until all official aid is finalized.

Finally, we know that you might have questions about the FAFSA and your financial aid here at KWU. If you, or your parents, need any clarification, we’re happy to help! You can call our office at 785-833-4315 or 785-833-4316. We will continue to share information with you as we know more.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue this process together!
