Financial Aid

Welcome to the KSUCPM family! 

I am thrilled that you will be joining KSUCPM on your journey to becoming a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine. 

As your financial aid administrator, I will guide you through the financial aid process and answer any questions you may have regarding financial aid & scholarships, billing, or any other general inquiries. 

Typically, the Department of Education begins accepting FAFSA applications beginning October 1st of each year. However, this year there are some major changes that are being implemented to make the FAFSA easier and more user-friendly. I anticipate the FAFSA application to open sometime in December as the Department of Education finalizes these changes. As information is available, you will be receiving updates and notifications regarding FASFA and financial aid.  

I look forward to serving you these next four years and beyond, and again welcome you to our KSUCPM family!
