The program’s ultimate goal is for students to graduate with the competencies necessary to be able to make self-directed, realistic and responsible decisions and to be successful contributors to society.
Did your students file the Iowa Financial Aid Application?
When Iowa students finish submitting the FAFSA online, it automatically directs them to fill out the Iowa Financial Aid Application (IFAA). Unfortunately, the 2019-20 FAFSA experienced some technical difficulties during the initial weeks after launching.
Among other issues, Iowa students were not immediately directed to file the IFAA upon completing the FAFSA. The issue has been resolved, but if students filed the FAFSA in early October, please direct them to iowacollegeaid.gov/IFAA to file the Iowa Financial Aid Application. The IFAA must be filed to qualify for many state-funded scholarships and grants.
The Iowa College Access Network (ICAN) is offering its planning programs online. Parents and students can stream recordings of previous events from any device, anytime, anywhere.
It’s the same information given in a traditional school-based evening presentation but offers the flexibility to access the information from anywhere.
