• 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 One.iu.edu. 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.
• 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.
