How to Apply for Financial Aid - FAFSA

In order to receive financial aid, you must be fully admitted and enrolled at UNK. If you have yet to apply to UNK and would like to, apply now. Once admitted, you must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to be awarded federal financial aid.

For the 2021-2022 award year, the FAFSA will be available beginning October 1, 2020. You (and your parent when applicable) will report income and tax information from tax year 2019.

The online FAFSA will guide you through the application; click the “Start Here” button on the home page if you're new to the FAFSA, and just follow the instructions on the screen.  While completing the FAFSA, you must fill in the University of Nebraska Kearney’s school code in order for the University to receive your information. 

The school code for UNK is 002551.
