It's important to apply for financial aid and scholarships each academic year. Cost does not have to be a barrier to achieving your educational goals.
Follow these simple steps to apply for financial assistance:
- Complete the FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1 each year. The FAFSA now uses income from an earlier, already completed tax year. Therefore, you do not have to wait to complete your new tax return! The FAFSA may be submitted online or in paper form.
- Be sure to use correct school codes when completing the FAFSA:
Kent State University federal school code: 003051
Kent State University at East Liverpool federal school code: 003056
Kent State University at Salem federal school code: 003061
- Complete the desired scholarship application(s) and submit. Be aware of differing deadlines.
- Contact the Financial Aid office at Kent State East Liverpool or Kent State Salem at any time if you have questions.
