Financial aid is a complicated topic and can be confusing to navigate. You should consult with the Financial Aid Office to learn how financial aid works, your options, and your payment responsibilities if you accept financial aid.
If you are admitted to a degree program, you may qualify for federal and/or state financial aid, including loans and grants (for undergraduate students). Eligibility for grants and/or loans is determined after you complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You can request a paper copy of the FAFSA from the Federal Student Aid Information Center at 800-4-FED-AID (800.433.3243) or 319.337.5665 (not toll-free) or by mailing a request to

Mount Vernon, IL 62864-0072
Because the process of determining whether you qualify for financial aid takes approximately eight weeks, you should submit all of your paperwork in a timely manner.
