Two applications are required for the maximum need-based financial aid consideration:
1.) Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
If you are only interested in government (federal or state) funds, the FAFSA is all that is required.
If you choose to file the IWU Financial Aid Application, we encourage you to file electronically by clicking the appropriate link above. We will receive your application electronically so there is no need to send us a printed copy.
If you would prefer to complete a printable version of the IWU Financial Aid Application instead of the online version, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with that request. If you choose to submit a paper application, please submit only one copy of the application. It can be mailed, faxed, scanned, or e-mailed.
