How to Find More Money
If a student applies for Financial Aid by submitting the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), the Office of Student Financial Aid will consider the student for many forms of student aid, including federal, state, or ISU-specific grants and scholarships.
Graduate students may be eligible for federal loans and other funding options listed below.
Graduate students with a valid FAFSA on file may be eligible to participate in the following programs:
- Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan. Annual amounts and interest rates are determined yearly by the U.S. Department of Education.
- Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan. This loan requires an application through StudentLoans.gov and credit approval. The interest rate is determined yearly by the U.S. Department of Education.
These programs offer fixed interest rates and flexible repayment options. Interest accrues upon disbursement. Students who will receive funding from employers or other sources should report the types of awards and amounts to the Office of Student Financial Aid. Receiving outside awards may affect the amount of loans a student is eligible to receive.
