    Getting Started with Financial Aid

    Applying for financial aid should not be a complicated and worrisome process. To that end, Kaplan University offers detailed information to guide you through the financial aid process. As an accredited learning institution, Kaplan University helps qualified students apply for and receive Title IV federal financial aid for many of our degree programs.*

    Kaplan University has provided a guide to help you through the financial aid process. Track your progress through each of the steps. Important federal student aid information is also accessible on the U.S. Department of Education Federal Student Aid website.

  • Financial Aid for Non-U.S. Citizens

    Aid From Your Home Country
    Contact the cultural section of your country’s embassy or ministry of education to inquire about financial aid options and their requirements.

    Aid From the U.S. Government
    The majority of U.S. government financial assistance is not available to international students. The U.S. government does provide aid to students from specific countries—you can get more information from your embassy or the U.S. State Department.
