Deferments are granted to students who have met certain guidelines as authorized by the Kansas Board of Regents. Deferments provide eligible students with additional time to pay for their tuition and fees.
There are four authorized deferment categories. They include:
Financial Aid –This is granted to students who have met all financial aid application requirements and whose awards have been made by the June packaging date, but whose aid has not been disbursed. The student must pay any amount of tuition and fees over and above the pending financial aid award. These deferments will be administered by SFA. They will be of standard length (see due dates below) however, these students may request a hardship deferment and if SFA deems the request legitimate they will notify the Cashiers Office who will process an additional 30 days.
