Student Loans for Summer

If you plan to attend summer classes at KSU for the current academic year and need federal financial aid, including the Pell Grant, you must have the 2023-2024 FAFSA on file. If you know you need financial aid to afford college — or if you think there's a chance you will need it — we encourage you to file the 2023-2024 FAFSA.

If you already have a 2023-2024 FAFSA on file, you do not need to file a new application.

You must also be enrolled at least half-time (six credit hours for undergraduate, five credit hours for graduate) in the summer and meet KSU’s Satisfactory Academic Progress standards to be considered for federal loans.
