What do I do first?
Fill out a FAFSA. You will first need to get a PIN (Personal Identification Number) at www.pin.ed.gov. A PIN is your electronic signature for the Dept. of Education and is required to complete your online FAFSA. Your parents are required to have their own PIN if you are a dependent. After getting your PIN, complete your FAFSA at https://fafsa.ed.gov (you will need tax return documentation to complete the FAFSA). The FAFSA is a free online tool for financial aid. You should never pay anything to fill this information out. Financial aid cannot be awarded without a completed FAFSA on file. Kilgore College must be listed as your first school of choice. KC's code is 003580.
Need help filling out the FAFSA?
Come into either the Kilgore College or KC-Longview campus and speak with our highly trained Financial Aid staff to assist with this process. Be sure to call first so we can tell you the information that will be needed to complete this step for you. We look forward to seeing you!
Deadline to apply for Financial Aid for the fall is July 1.
Submitting the FAFSA and any required documents late will still have their files processed. Financial Aid files will be processed in the order in which the documents were received. In the event that the financial aid is not awarded by the early registration payment deadline, please be sure to take advantage of the Pending Aid Payment Plan. Students will be expected to either have this payment plan option in place or pay for their classes until the financial aid package can be processed and awarded.
