Financial Aid Checklist

1 - Apply for Admission to KCKCC

If you are a new student to KCKCC you must complete an Admissions Application. Start this process at http://www.kckcc.edu/Apply. Please submit your official high school and all college transcripts to the Record’s Office.

2 - Create an FSA ID

The FSA ID is a username and password that must be used to sign the FAFSA and gives you access to your federal financial aid information. 

You must have a valid e-mail address to complete this process. Go to https://fsaid.ed.gov to create your FSA ID. If you are a dependent student one of your parents must also create a FSA ID with a valid e-mail address that is different from yours.

3 - Apply on-line at https://fafsa.gov

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be filed to determine eligibility for federal grants, student loans, work-study and some college scholarships. 

Gather financial information: 

  • W-2 forms
  • Federal Income Tax Return
  • Records of child support statements for all children (received or paid) from the previous year.
  • If you are a dependent student, you will also need your parent(s)/stepparent(s) information.
    •  Social Security number(s) and birth dates
    •  Income and financial records (as listed above) 
  • Current bank statements and records of stocks, bonds, and other investments
Using the IRS Tax Data Retrieval Tool is highly recommended to prevent delays in processing your financial aid.

Select KCKCC as a school on your FAFSA our SCHOOL CODE is 001925.

4 - Receive notification from the KCKCC Student Financial Aid Office

When the Student Financial Aid Office at KCKCC receives your FAFSA you will be notified by mail. Requests for more information to complete your file will be sent to your KCKCC student e-mail. Once your file is completed an award notice will be sent to your KCKCC student e-mail.

5 - Apply for scholarships and performance grants

6 - Apply for a Federal Direct Student Loan, if needed.

KCKCC does not automatically award federal student loans. Federal Student Loans are available upon request to all eligible students who complete the FAFSA upon request.  Loans will be processed upon the receipt of a Student Loan Request Form and after the student is enrolled in at least 6 credit hours. Loan application information can be requested at the KCKCC Student Financial Aid Office, Technical Education Center or Leavenworth Pioneer Career Center after May 1.
