Financial aid is available for students in both the undergraduate and graduate programs, whether attending our campus in Parkville, Missouri or one of our campuses located throughout the United States.
Because of the nature of federal, state, and institutional guidelines affecting financial aid programs, the information contained in this website is subject to change.
Application DeadlinesAll necessary paperwork must be received by our office at least one full month prior to the start of the semester for which you plan to enroll. Student Financial Services suggests a student apply for aid a minimum of 90 days prior to the beginning of the term. The student will be awarded for the terms requested on the Request for Financial Aid, usually Fall 1 through and including Spring 2. Summer is normally packaged separately, unless the student begins attending later in the year. The FAFSA web page is updated and available after January 1st for the next academic year, requiring the current year’s federal 1040 information, along with the Personal Identification Number, to complete the process online. SFS has a ‘priority deadline’ date of March 15th each academic year.

Coordination of Financial Assistance
Any financial aid awarded is subject to review based on assistance received from outside sources. All sources of aid, with the exception of Chapter 31 VA benefits are regarded as estimated financial assistance and must be included in the financial aid award.
Funds received from outside sources, combined with existing aid which exceed the limit of gift aid and need based scholarships will be coordinated to first reduce the loans and or work resources, and then college or grant scholarships.
