FAFSA APPLICATION DEADLINES
Many students will find themselves in need of financial assistance to help cover the cost of tuition and fees. We are dedicated to helping prospective and current Park University students obtain that assistance throughout the financial aid process. To be considered for federal financial aid, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
All necessary paperwork must be received by our office at least one month prior to the start of the semester for which the student plans to enroll. Student Financial Services suggests a student apply for aid a minimum of 90 days prior to the beginning of the term.
The FAFSA page is available October 1, 2018 for the 2019 -2020 award/academic year.

Financial Aid REFUNDS
Students at Park University who receive more in financial aid than the charges on their student account may receive a refund. In cases of a refund, students should complete the Direct Deposit form.
If a student has been awarded a scholarship that is in conflict with a refund, we provide further instructions. (i.e.: Kansas City Scholars is one such scholarship).
COORDINATION OF FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
Any financial aid award is subject to review based on assistance received from outside sources. All sources of aid, with the exception of VA benefits, are regarded as estimated financial assistance and must be included in the financial aid award.
