Important Federal Student Aid Update: Starting with the Spring 2024 semester, students enrolled in K-State’s Master of Agribusiness (MAB) program are no longer eligible for federal, Title IV, forms of student financial assistance such as the Federal Direct Unsubsidized and/or the Federal Graduate PLUS Loan program. This change is being made to keep the flexibility and convenience of the schedule offered by the Master of Agribusiness program for adult learners. Ineligibility for federal forms of student aid is premised solely on the calendar structure of the program’s start and end dates for course work and is not premised in any manner on the program’s educational quality.
Students engaged in the Dual Masters of Agribusiness (MAB) – Professional Master of Business Administration (PMBA) program should note that only course work required for the completion of the PMBA portion may be utilized in calculating a student’s federal aid eligibility.
Important - Students in educational programs that are not eligible for federal forms of financial assistance, such as the MAB program remain eligible for other, non-federal forms of aid such as private/commercial educational loans and the scholarship opportunities listed below.
Students requiring some non-federal form of student loan assistance are encouraged to visit K-State’s Office of Student Financial Assistance’s at: https://www.k-state.edu/sfa/scholarships-aid/loans/private/
For additional student aid information, we encourage you to contact K-State’s Office of Student Financial Assistance at firstname.lastname@example.org
