 3. Sign your Master Promissory Note

Once you have completed entrance counseling, you will be required to digitally sign a Master Promissory Note (MPN). A master promissory note (MPN) is a legally binding contract between the borrower and the US Department of Education. When this contract is signed the borrower is agreeing to repay the loan money borrowed. Learn more about this…

 4. Sign & Return your KCU Award Letter

Once you have completed and submitted your FAFSA, KCU’s financial aid office will send you an award letter. The award letter will detail each of the federal, state, and institutional grants, loans, and scholarships you have received. The award letter will then be used to determine your final costs.


5. Submit Housing Form & Pay Housing Deposit

The housing form is used to help us identify a roommate that matches you well or make sure you get placed with a previously identified roommate. It also allows us the opportunity to get to know you a little better before you move in. Please download the housing form below and return it to the admissions department.

 7. Schedule a New Student Registration Date

Before you move into your dorm at the start of the semester, each student must attend a New Student Registration event. These events are scheduled on various dates during the summer, prior to the beginning of each semester (during the winter for Spring semesters). You will be able to sign up online for these events several months before the actual events. Contact your enrollment counselor for additional information regarding New Student Registration.

Lifelong Friends

“At KCU, you have the opportunity to make lifelong friends with other faculty, staff and students.  I know for
me, these friendships will continue into eternity as these will be some of my treasures stored in heaven.”

Dr. Mitch Marshall, KCU Professor
