What about Federal Financial Aid?

The federal regulations governing the federal financial aid programs require that in order to receive federal financial assistance, the student be a “regularly admitted student accepted into a program of study”.   This means that Federal financial aid is available for online students who are “degree-seeking” at KWU. This means that they have completed all of the online admissions application processes, submitted all required official test scores, official transcripts from all colleges attended and their high school of graduation transcript, and have been officially accepted for admission to the University.

This means that students who elect NOT to provide transcripts, test scores etc are NOT officially admitted. They are considered “Non-Degree Seeking” and are NOT eligible to use Federal Financial Aid.  Just like on-ground students, online students who wish to use federal financial aid, must submit the Degree Seeking Admissions application and all transcripts and test scores and be admitted to the university.
