Applying for Aid

FAFSA—1st Step!

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the application for most types of financial aid at Indiana State University.

File the FAFSA between January 1 and March 1 to be considered for all possible funding. Send the FAFSA to ISU by listing our school code—001807. Individuals who have not filed a federal tax return by March 1 should select the "Will File" option on the FAFSA. After filing, it is important to update the FAFSA, change the status to "Already Filed," and provide tax information. Corrections to the FAFSA must be made by May 15.

Students are notified of award eligibility via the MyISU Portal.

Aid is typically applied to school accounts about ten days before a term begins. Late paperwork submission or late FAFSA filing can cause delays in processing. Check the MyISU Portal to verify that all requested documents have been submitted.
