Financial Aid for Returning Students
The Financial Aid Office is excited to announce a transition to online electronic Financial Aid Award Letter Notifications for the 2013-2014 academic year!
In an effort to better support our students and provide the most up to date information in the quickest way possible, we are making this improvement to our processing. To facilitate this transition, the initial Award Letter notification for the 2013-2014 award year will still be mailed and an electronic copy will be posted to the student’s MyKSC web account. After this initial paper copy has been generated and mailed, all subsequent Revised Award Letters will only be posted to the web.
To further facilitate this process, we will no longer require that Award Letters be signed and returned to our office unless the student is declining all or a portion of aid offered. Acceptance of all awards will be assumed. If the student wishes to decline all or a portion of the aid offered, a copy of the Award Letter can be printed from MyKSC, signed and returned to our office with the requested adjustments indicated on the Letter.
Additionally, in an attempt to expedite the verification process, all requests for required verification documents will only be forwarded via email to the student’s keene.edu email address. No paper requests will be mailed. Students who have been selected for the verification process will receive an email only requesting the items required and will also be able to view the requested documents in the MyDocuments section of their MyKSC account.
Completing the FAFSA – Even though you may have done it before, you must complete a FAFSA before our March 1 deadline every year you wish to receive financial aid (including all federal loans) at KSC. Remember that financial aid awards are based on the information submitted in each year's application materials.
Additional Loan Options – If financial aid is not enough to cover your costs, and you are looking to borrow a loan to help pay your bill, here are some options. Remember that you've got to apply for these loans each year you you need them:
