Read important tips to help you through the financial aid process.
In this section of the KGI Student Portal, you will view all of the aid available to you.
ACCEPT or DECLINE—Here, you can accept or decline the Unsubsidized and Graduate PLUS loans available to you. If the ACCEPT box is not checked, the loans will not be disbursed to your account.
Award Letter—The My Financial Aid page of the KGI Student Portal serves as your Award Letter. If you need a paper award letter, please contact the KGI Financial Aid Office.
Status—The status column on the My Financial Aid Page indicates where your loan is in the awarding process.
If you are expecting a refund for living expenses, the Student Account Department processes all refund checks once the loans have been disbursed. The checks are available from the Student Account Department 14 days after your loans are disbursed to the student ledgers. They are usually available the first week of the official semester (not orientation). The KGI Student Account Department will notify you when your check is ready to be picked up.
If you decide you no longer want a refund for living expenses, you have the right to cancel a student loan within 10 days from the time the funds were posted to your account. This will prevent Student Accounts from processing a refund check after your loans have been disbursed to your student ledger.
There are many places to find outside scholarships. If you belong to clubs and organizations, please speak to their main office for scholarship information. Please follow us on Twitter for outside scholarship opportunities.
There are several searchable external scholarship databases provided online. The following are some examples of scholarship search engines which may help you during your search:
If you receive assistance from private sources, these funds will need to be reported to the Financial Aid Office. This would include outside scholarships or tuition assistance awarded within the academic year. The total amount received from all resources cannot exceed the student’s cost of attendance.
In efforts to lower educational loan debt, it is our policy to apply an outside scholarship toward the Graduate PLUS Loan should the amount requested is up to the student’s cost of attendance within their overall financial aid package.
