Financial Aid, Awards & Scholarships

Financial Aid

Applying for financial aid and being considered for merit scholarships is easier than you might think. Just follow these steps.

  1. Apply for admission to IU by the appropriate priority date. The priority date for all incoming freshmen is November 1. Students who apply by this date will receive maximum consideration for merit-based scholarships. Transfer students and international graduate students should visit How to Apply to determine their priority date.
  2. Submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon after January 1 as possible, and so it’s received by March 1, for need-based financial aid consideration. Be sure to enter IU’s federal school code, 001809. International students are not eligible to file the FAFSA.
  3. Apply for additional aid opportunities. These include additional scholarship opportunities outside IU—such as national scholarships and those in your local community—and aid for international students.
  4. Stay tuned. Admitted freshmen who file the FAFSA by March 1 will learn about their fall financial aid awards in late spring. Returning, transfer, and graduate students find out in mid-summer.
