How to Apply for Federal Financial Aid

  2. Once your online study abroad application is in the Committed phase, your Study Abroad Advisor will provide you with a cost summary for your program, with you both must sign. Once the cost summary is signed, your Study Abroad Advisor will send it to the Office of Student Financial Assistance.
  3. Set up an appointment with Dyan Marie (finaid@k-state.edu) in the Office of Student Financial Assistance. She can assist you with any additional financial aid questions you may have.
  4. You will receive a notification on your K-State student iSIS account if there is a change in the amount of financial aid that you are awarded.
  5. Make all necessary arrangements to receive your financial aid. To simplify this process, we highly recommend that you register for your eRefund on iSIS and/or that a parent or guardian applies for the Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) with the Cashier’s Office.
