Using Financial Aid for Online Courses

Kennesaw State University is committed to ensuring a post-secondary education is accessible to all qualified students, regardless of on-campus or online learning. 

The Office of Student Financial Aid subscribes to the following goals to assist students in paying for their educational investment: 

  • Evaluate the family's financial ability to pay for educational costs
  • Distribute limited resources in an equitable manner
  • Provide a balance of gift aid and self-help aid. 

A wide variety of financial aid programs from scholarships, grants, employment, and loans are available to help students with educational costs. Most awards are based on financial need while some are awarded in recognition of merit or achievement. Financial Aid is awarded based on full-time enrollment status (12 hours). Financial Aid packages for students enrolled less than full-time may require adjustments. Eligibility for awards varies with enrollment status.
