The Financial Aid Process
Apply for Aid by Submitting a FAFSA
- With the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you can apply for financial aid even before applying to King’s. The FAFSA opens October 1.
- Our school code is 040953. By March 15, submit your application or let us know if you won’t be using the FAFSA.
- New York State residents should also complete the Tuition Assistance Program application at the end of the FAFSA.
Review Your Award Letter
- If you have submitted your FAFSA and have been accepted to King’s, then we are already working on your financial aid package. We award financial aid on a rolling basis starting in November.
- Once you receive your package, review it with your admissions counselor.
Make Your Enrollment Deposit
To officially become a King’s student, you’ll submit an enrollment deposit that goes towards your first semester’s bill. From there, you can work with Student Financial Services to set up loans or payment plans.
If you’re applying for need-based financial aid from King’s or from the federal government, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required. Be sure to include our school code, which is 040953. You may be selected to participate in the FAFSA verification process, and if so, you will receive a notification from the Student Financial Services Team and should submit your documents by April 15 for a Fall semester start.

Types of Aid
The King’s College awards scholarships based on academic merit and resonance with our mission, and third-party scholarships provide another way to fund your education.
Your FAFSA will determine what grants you qualify for—both from The King’s College and from federal and state government. Grants are need-based and do not need to be repaid.
Many students have used federal and private loans to fund a quality education that would otherwise be out of reach. King’s students far outpace the national loan repayment rate.
Additional FAFSA Documents
When applying for federal student aid, additional documentation may be required.
