Apply for financial aid EARLY!
Students must apply for financial aid each year. Financial aid awarded by the University of Iowa Office of Student Financial Aid (UI OSFA) is not automatically renewed.
File the FAFSA by February 15, 2016 for priority consideration for scholarships and grants awarded by the UI OSFA. Do not wait until you file your 2015 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).
