There are a variety of other programs and enrollment classifications at the University of Iowa.  Financial aid may be available to help students who participate in these programs or have special enrollment classifications.

Individual University of Iowa colleges, departments, and programs may have their own financial aid funds to award. Check out the web site for the department/college in which you are enrolled.

  • Visiting Students

Students who are attending the University of Iowa (UI) for a semester or academic year only and will be returning to their "home" institution to receive their degree are considered visiting students.  These students must apply for financial aid from their "home" institution.

  • Cooperative Education, Internships, and Auditing Courses

For financial aid purposes, students participating in these programs are considered not enrolled and; therefore, not eligible for financial aid.
