Financial Aid & Scholarships

All students applying to Kairos University must also apply for financial aid through FAFSA, if they are eligible.

Kairos University itself does not provide educational loans, but we do have scholarships. Students who might need to take out loans for school as part of their financial plan are encouraged to seek educational loans provided by the state and federal government. Private educational loans are also available through many banks.


The Federal Pell Grant Program provides federal funds for students of qualifying families. To be eligible, an applicant must be a United States citizen or permanent resident, demonstrate financial need, and must not have previously earned a bachelor’s degree.


The Cal Grant program provides awards for California resident applicants who demonstrate financial need and meet GPA requirements. California resident students may apply by filling out the FAFSA and a GPA Verification Form. To be eligible for a fall semester award the student must submit a Cal Grant application and FAFSA by March 2.


The California Dream Act is for non-SSN (social security number) students. Students must complete the online Dream Act Application and re-submit the Dream Act (Cal Grant) application online every year. Students who have never received the Dream Act (Cal Grant) must apply by the March 2 deadline date and submit a non-SSN Cal Grant form.


Kairos University scholarships will be awarded at the beginning of each semester; the recipients will receive credit for the amount of the scholarship toward their tuition. The total scholarship cannot exceed the tuition that the student should pay
