Financial Aid

Financial aid provides assistance to meet college expenses. Aid is available to qualified students enrolled both full- and part-time in eligible programs. All admissions criteria must be met before a student is eligible to receive financial aid.

The first step for students seeking federal financial aid is to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The application is available online at

The four major types of financial aid available through KCC are scholarships, grants, loans, and part-time student employment.
