This page is designed for students who are currently attending the University of Iowa. You will find information and links to pages within the Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) website to assist you in the financial aid process.

As a returning undergraduate, you may have different needs from prospective and incoming undergraduates. Our mission remains the same; to assist students whose personal and family resources are not adequate to cover the costs involved in attending the University of Iowa.

To be considered for federal, state, and need-based institutional aid, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year. Financial Aid is offered on a first-come, first-served basis, so we encourage you to complete your FAFSA as soon as possible to receive maximum consideration for financial aid. You may file your 2024-2025 FAFSA through June 30, 2025.

You must complete a new FAFSA for each academic year that you wish to receive aid.
