Filling Out FAFSA


Applying for financial aid just got easier!

To be awarded financial aid, you are no longer required to complete the Iowa Verification Form (IVF) or provide copies of federal income tax returns.  Some students will need to provide additional information and will be notified by the UI OSFA.

File the FAFSA as soon as possible after January 1, 2015.  Do not wait until you file your 2014 federal tax return.  Use estimated information so that you can submit your FAFSA early.

Awards are made on a first-come, first-served basis.  Although students can apply for financial aid throughout the year, funding for some financial aid programs may be depleted before you are awarded, so submit your FAFSA as soon as possible.

Application instructions are available on our web site at:

After filing your FAFSA, check your application status on MyUI (Student Records, Application/Loan Document Status).
