Release of Information

The Office of Student Financial Aid requires consent to communicate with anyone other than the student about their financial aid once the student has started their classes at Iowa. Students can complete a Student Record Consent in MyUI for any person, including the parent(s) listed on the FAFSA, that they would like our office to communicate with regarding their financial aid. Guest Accounts allow individuals a student selects to have viewing privileges in MyUI. However, a MyUI Guest Account will not permit our office to release information to the Guest Account holder.

Appointments with Financial Aid Advisors

Current University of Iowa students may schedule an appointment on MyUI to meet with an Advisor. Appointments fill quickly at the start of the academic year, so Zoom drop-in, phone, or email may be a quicker way to get your questions answered.

Parents and prospective students and families will need to email us or call our office at 319-335-1450 to schedule an appointment.
