KCU developed a methodology to disburse these grants to students that allowed funds to be disbursed in the spirit of guidance provided by the Department of Education.  Specifically, our methodology was to provide emergency grants to eligible students (a) quickly; (b) to those with greatest need and (c) ensuring that funds are distributed as widely as possible.  With that as the background, the following is the specific way the institution determined which students would receive an Emergency Financial Aid Grant and how much they would receive.

  • Each eligible full-time KCU undergraduate student who received a federal PELL Grant for the Spring 2022 term received $1,100.
  • Each eligible part-time KCU undergraduate student who received a federal PELL Grant for the Spring 2022 term received $850.
  • Each eligible full-time KCU undergraduate student who did not received a federal PELL Grant for the Spring 2022 term received $750.
  • Each eligible part-time KCU undergraduate student who did not received a federal PELL Grant for the Spring 2022 term received $400.
  • All full-time graduate students received $600.
  • All part time graduate students received $300
  1. Any instructions, directions, or guidance provided by the institution to students concerning the Emergency Financial Aid Grants.

In early January, 2022 KCU students were provided the opportunity to consent to having these funds applied directly to their student accounts via the my.kcu.edu portal.  Those that did not consent received funds in March, 2022
