Financial Aid


The Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships, 103 Plumb Hall, offers financial assistance to students through grants, part-time employment, and low-interest government loans. Contact the Financial Aid Office at 620-341-5457 or outside Emporia at 1-800-896-0567 if you have questions.

Application for financial aid includes the following steps: 1) Apply for admission and pay the application for admission fee through the Emporia State University Admissions Office, 2) Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) via the internet at <> or mail the completed FAFSA to the federal processor. Completion of the FAFSA is required to determine your eligibility for all federal and state financial aid programs. If you are selected for verification by the federal processor, you may be asked to submit additional information.

Financial aid is not automatically renewed. Students must complete the FAFSA each academic year. To receive early consideration for federal resources (Federal Pell Grant and Federal Direct Loans), federal campus-based aid (Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, Federal Perkins Loan, Federal College Work-Study), or Kansas Board of Regents need-based scholarships and grants, the FAFSA should be completed by the March 15 priority date.
