Financial Assistance

Welcome to the Financial Assistance Office at Fort Hays State University!
Learn about financial aid resources, how to apply for aid, the cost of going to college and how to pay for college. Each year, we award and deliver over $59 million of loans, grants, scholarships and employment funding from university, federal, state and private sources. We understand that applying for aid can be confusing. We are here to help!

FHSU FAFSA Priority Deadline for 2019-2020
Students will be able to submit the 19-20 FAFSA application starting October 1, 2018. Students will use their 2017 income information on the application. The FHSU Priority deadline is December 1, 2018.  Mark your calendars with this date so you do not miss out on limited funded financial aid.

Last Date of Attendance or Participation
Under federal regulations, we must confirm students' course participation for courses dropped/withdrawn from after financial aid is disbursed. Please note that dropping/withdrawing from a course could require you to repay, specifically for Pell Grant recipients. For more information about these changes, click here or contact our office.
