WHAT TO DO FIRST
In times of financial hardship, ask yourself some key questions:
- Is this a new hardship, a new level of hardship, or something previously known?
- Is this likely to be a long-term hardship, or is the hardship more temporary or immediate?
- What resources have I already sought out?
- What, specifically, will it take to get me through this hardship?
Determine if your current program is correctly working with your Advisor to make the
appropriate changes to your major or minor. Contact your Financial Aid counselor to
discuss options if your federal financial aid has been reduced due to enrollment in
courses that did not apply towards outstanding requirements in your Course Program
Please understand available options may include new or additional loan opportunities. Loans are an invaluable resource for many KSU students and families. Simply not wishing to take on educational debt does not constitute a financial hardship.
Significant changes in financial circumstances, either for you or your family, may
help you qualify for a reconsideration of your financial package at KSU. A financial
aid officer can review your situation and alert you to any available options.
The Division of Student Affairs and the Department of Economics, Finance and Quantitative Analysis believe that a college student can graduate with minimal debt so that the student can start their work career without the overwhelming burden of high loan and credit card payments. This site will inform students about what they can do now to help ensure that they leave college on stable financial ground.
