Student Loans for IUPUI Students
About Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis
Applying for IUPUI Financial Aid
Just like all public universities, IUPUI requires the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) from students who are applying for financial aid. That’s it! Seriously. To receive IUPUI financial aid, simply file the FAFSA. Before doing so, however, it might be prudent to ask about any ‘free money’ awards you might be eligible for; it’s also a good idea to ask if you might have to borrow money to afford attending IUPUI.
IUPUI Student Loans
Grants, scholarships, work-study programs, and student loans are the main ingredients of any IUPUI financial aid package. That’s pretty standard fare, and any student who is deemed to have financial aid will see some sort of aid package with a mix of these ingredients. For many, these forms of aid will be enough, but for some students, the federal loans included in their aid package just aren’t enough to help them cover costs. For these students, private student loans can be a good option to cover the tuition gap.
