FEDERAL AND PROVINCIAL AID
Due to the termination of the federal loans subsidy (“Subsidized Loans”) at the graduate level (per the Budget Control Act of 2011), the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan program (Title IV) remains the most popular student loan program available for graduate-level students. Unsubsidized loans are available to every student who completes a FAFSA. Interest begins accruing 120 days from the time of disbursement. However the student is not required to make any payments while in deferment status. These low-interest loans are provided by banks which are subsidized by the Federal Government.
*Students complete item 3 every year and items 7 and 8 every semester. Items 5 and 6 are only done once for Kairos University.
You must be accepted and enrolled in Kairos before federal aid can be awarded.
Apply for your PIN at pin.ed.gov. The PIN will serve as the electronic signature when filing the FAFSA on-line. By signing your application with PIN numbers, the FAFSA data is entered directly into the Department of Education’s Central Processing System (CPS). This speeds up the processing time of your FAFSA from several weeks to just a few days.
The PIN can also be used to access other related information including:
