Financial aid at IUPUI is based on financial need, enrollment status, and academic progress. The Office of Student Financial Aid Services (OSFAS) administers federal, state, and university funds. Assistance is available in the form of grants, fee scholarships, loans, and part-time employment.


To be considered for most types of aid, students must be accepted for at least half-time enrollment at IUPUI in a degree-granting program or University College. If a student enrolls and later drops a class, the financial aid awards may be changed to the level appropriate to the new enrollment. Students should always check with a financial aid counselor before dropping classes.
