Abstract

Paying for college doesn’t have to be financially overwhelming. There are several types of aid, including federal, state and institutional grants; scholarships from numerous sources; college savings plans; student and parent loans; and student employment options available to help you pay for college. In fact, most students attending Iowa colleges and universities receive some form of financial assistance. To be considered for most financial aid programs, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Applying for admission is not the same as applying for financial aid - you need to do both. To receive financial aid, it is necessary to file a completed FAFSA and submit an admissions application to the colleges and universities that interest you most. Follow the steps in this brochure to be considered for funds from the state of Iowa, the federal government and the colleges or universities of your choice.
