Winter Sessions Payments
Winter Session enrollment at KU is handled differently than Fall and Spring terms. It is online only. Payment is due when you register. Payment is defined as payment in full to KU directly, payment plan set up in good standing on the Payment Dashboard, Winter Aid Application submitted (and payment made when determination made), 529 proof submitted of request being made to plan or waiver posted (with payment of non-covered items posted). Enrollments will be removed weekly for non-payment. Please take a sense of urgency when planning attendance in the winter session. Lastly, we ask that you kindly remove enrollments if you decide to not attend to open the seat for another student who may need it.
**ALERT** - Due dates are based on the date the registration occurred in MyKU.

- Financial Aid - Complete a Winter Aid Application if interested - turn it into the Financial Aid Office with a sense of urgency!
- Visit Financial Aid to discuss your personal options as Winter session is different since it is not an aid bearing term or session.
- Students who haven't used all of their FALL aid, may have some leftover that they can use for Winter session, but must complete this request before Fall is over.
- If using Fall aid, the student (or parent) may be refunded in Fall and they would need to use the refund to pay for Winter independently, with urgency.
- If taking an alternative loan, apply at www.elmselect.com and then log into MyKU. The student MUST Grant Permission for FUTURETERM aid under View Student Permissions. This will allow a Fall alternative loan to post to the future term (session) of Winter. You must let Financial Aid know that you are taking the loan for the winter session.
When are Winter charges due?
This chart shows when your payment is due. Classes will be dropped shortly after the due date, do not delay. To ensure your classes are safe, be sure your payment posts on MyKU before or ON the due date, that your payment plan is set up in good standing with the Payment Plan Dashboard by the due date, or that any pending aid is actually showing as pending aid in MyKU (if aid is not showing as pending we are not considering it as payment - speak to Financial Aid). If classes are dropped, you will be required to prepay in order to register again for classes based on availability at that time.

How will I know my winter aid package?
Winter session is not an aid session or term. There is no aid package for winter. If a student used all of their Fall 2020 aid during the Fall semester, determination can be made quickly. If you were not aid eligible in the Fall 2020 semester, you will not have aid eligibility for the Winter Session even if your grades for Fall make you eligible for the Spring 2021 semester. If you have concerns on your eligibility, you can discuss them with the Financial Aid office. Call 610-683-4077 to contact Financial Aid.
If you are NOT eligible for Financial Aid, you will need to pay us directly in full, sign up for the payment plan or review Alternative Loans. Recent regulation changes have lengthened the processing time for alternative loans, we highly encourage you to apply immediately (this process can take up to 2-4 weeks).
When will my winter aid be disbursed to my account and/or refunded?
There is no Winter aid. Students may be able to use unused Fall 2020 aid. Contact Financial Aid for information and eligibility concerns: 610-683-4077 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternative loans can be applied for - they would post to Fall. If you want them to be refunded to you so that you can pay us, that is possible. If you prefer the loan automatically just pay winter - then you need to Grant Permission for FUTURETERM. MyKU > KU Financial Account tile > View Student Permissions and grant permission for FUTURETERM.
