Financial Aid

If you need financial aid, contact the Financial Aid office at 913-469-3840 or visit the Financial Aid web page. You should begin the financial aid process at least six months prior to the first day of the semester.

It is recommended that all students submit a FAFSA form to the financial aid office, since not all scholarship awards are based on financial need.
