Receiving Financial Aid at IUPUI

You must submit a FAFSA each year to be considered for federal and state aid. After receiving your FAFSA we will determine aid eligibility, calculate financial need, award financial aid, and send Financial Aid Notifications (FANs). Here are some important financial aid reminders for current students:

   •  Complete the FAFSA every year by March 10. By meeting the FAFSA priority deadline,
      eligible Indiana residents are considered for state aid. Additionally, students will receive
      maximum consideration in the aid awarding process.

   •  Read your IUPUI email regularly! Our primary means of communication is via the student's
      IUPUI email account.

   •  Check your “To Do List” items often through Anything that ends up on your
      To Do List must be completed in order for you to receive financial aid. Therefore, it is very
      important that you check your To Do List on a regular basis and turn in all requested
      documents in a timely fashion since most forms take at least 10 business days to process.

   •  Electronic FANs are delivered by mid-June. Financial Aid Notifications should be available
      to view through, given that no additional documentation is needed. To learn how
      to view your FAN please click here.

   •  Accept, Reduce, or Decline any federal student loans or Federal Work Study funding that
      you have been offered.
Grants and scholarships are automatically accepted on your behalf
      since it is money that you don’t have to earn or pay back. Other awards (such as Federal
      Direct Loans and Federal Work Study) must be manually accepted, reduced, or declined by
      the student. We recommend doing so as soon as you receive your bill to ensure that funds
      are applied by the Office of the Bursar’s billing due date. If no action is taken your loans will
      not disburse and will not be applied to your bill. To learn how to accept, reduce, or decline
      awards please click here.
