We encourage all eligible students to apply for financial aid.  KVCC offers financial help to qualifying students in part-time or full-time credit programs that lead to degrees, certificates or diplomas. We assist you with applying for awards from grant, scholarship, work and loan programs. Over two thirds of our matriculated students receive tuition assistance from various sources. Awarded students use the aid to pay for tuition, fees, and books, as well as for living costs such as rent, transportation, and childcare.


KVCC FAFSA School Code:  009826


Financial Aid Deadlines 

Financial aid applications are processed as they are received, though we cannot guarantee that applications submitted less than two weeks before the start of the term will be awarded in time for students to be able to use a book voucher, if eligible, to “charge” their books against their financial aid before school starts. We strongly encourage students to fill out their FAFSA’s by May 1 for the next school year so they can qualify for a Maine State Grant if otherwise eligible. 


KVCC’s financial aid year starts with the fall semester, followed by the spring and summer semesters.  Therefore, a student who wishes to start with a summer term would have to fill out a FAFSA for one school year to qualify for summer aid and for the next school year to qualify for fall aid.

Students may check the status of their financial aid 24/7 via the the MY KV Student Information Portal. Use the portal to:

  • Check what documents are required to complete your financial aid application.
  • View your financial aid award information, by award year,  on a semester-by-semester basis.

We look forward to serving you!
