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 all forms of student aid, including federal, state, or ISU-specific grants and scholarships. This evaluation happens automatically.

If eligible, the student will also be offered Federal student loans, including the Federal Perkins Loan as well as the Federal Direct Stafford Loan. These loans do not require a credit check, and the student must apply through the school.

If additional assistance is needed, parents may consider borrowing a Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loan. Applications are submitted through the school via a paper form.

Alternatively, students may consider a private student loan through the lender of their choice.

Federal Direct Parent PLUS loans and private loans require new applications each year, and students must meet all regular financial aid eligibility requirements for the loan to be certified.
