Financial Aid and Scholarships

Financial aid and scholarships make a world-class education affordable.

Attending Kalamazoo College is a life-changing experience. The Office of Financial Aid will help show you how your K education can be within your financial reach. In fact, in the 2018-19 academic year, 98 percent of Kalamazoo College students shared nearly $49 million in grants and scholarships.

Student grants, such as Pell Grants, are awarded based on financial need. Students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be fully evaluated for state, federal and institutional need-based financial aid. Kalamazoo College’s FAFSA ID is 002275.

Kalamazoo College also offers merit-based scholarships, which are awarded separately from the FAFSA. They vary in application and format, and can have different deadlines and requirements. Prospective students may directly contact their admission counselor for more information on these opportunities.

Continuing Students

Continuing students who file a FAFSA must refile each year to renew their financial aid. The online application is available beginning Oct. 1 for the next academic year. Fill it out as soon as possible and include K’s FAFSA ID number, 002275. You will be required to submit tax data. Michigan residents must file a FAFSA by March 1 each year. If your legal residence is outside Michigan, you may look up the FAFSA deadline for your state.

You may view your financial aid information by logging in through the Hornet HQ. Consult our policies to learn how not taking enough credits, course withdrawal and satisfactory academic progress can affect your financial aid. Estimate your costs and find more information on how your aid is disbursed.
