STUDENT ATHLETE (502C.1)
STUDENT-ATHLETES: SIXTH YEAR AID FUND
Although grants-in-aid do not include financial aid once eligibility expires, Kansas Athletics strives to provide funds, as available, for former student-athletes to complete their undergraduate degree requirements.
Per NCAA regulations, former student-athlete would have to provide community service for the department during the time when Kansas Athletics provides financial assistance.
This fund is established to assist former Jayhawk student-athletes to receiving their undergraduate degree. Kansas Athletics will not provide financial aid for any graduate work.
Former student-athletes must formally apply in writing to the Associate Athletic Director/Student Support Services and include the rational for receiving additional financial support and how many credit hours are required for graduation.

Availability of necessary classes;Grades achieved in previous course work;Course completion requirements necessary for graduation.
