Making KU affordable

Summer Work-Study

The Summer term is a "trailer" at KU, meaning it is part of the previous academic year for aid purposes. To be eligible for Summer Federal Work-Study students must have filed a FAFSA for the previous academic year. Additional requirements include: 

  • Students must be enrolled. 
  • Students must file the Summer Request for Financial Aid (available here March 1). 
  • Summer 2020 Federal Work-Study funds can be used from May 31, 2020 to August 8, 2020.
